What people are saying about Pilgrim's African American History Museum...

"This is giving CAAM (California African American Museum) a run for its money and CAAM is losing!"

"This needs to be up all year long and invite other schools to visit."

"There's so much information that I did not know."


Come see 40+ exhibits sharing the African American experience created by students, teachers and parents. Some of the exhibits include a wall exhibit of The Underground Railroad, the Negro Baseball Leagues, an African American Doll Collection sponsored by Mary Kimbrough of Zambezi Bazaar in Leimert Park, the work of Master Doll Maker, Mr. Floyd Bell, unveiling his recently completed replica of a P51 Mustang model airplane, a Tuskegee Airmen fighter plane with a 5 foot wing span and art projects created by each classroom! This exhibit follows the African American experience from Egyptian Kings and Queens to present day events!
