Black experiences and contributions to society are central to the human story.
Africans, African American, and Afro-Caribbean people have long-standing histories in Alachua County. The histories of these communities have not been sufficiently studied. The Alachua County African and African American Historical Society exists to promote the study, teaching, preservation, and dissemination of African American history and Diaspora Studies in Alachua County.
The Society is a registered 501(c)3 organization established in 2020. Click below to view our bylaws.
