    African-American history in Buffalo is centered in the neighborhood surrounding the Michigan Street Baptist Church. Join us for a tour of important locations in this neighborhood to learn about the major milestones in African-American history in Buffalo, as well as how this affected national history. Buffalo has played a major role in African American history, from the days of the Underground Railroad to the formation of the Niagara Movement, a precursor to the NAACP. This tour includes an interior tour of the Michigan Street Baptist Church, Nash House Museum, and Colored Musicians Club Museum, three important landmarks in this neighborhood.

    Meet in the parking lot adjacent to the Colored Musicians Club Museum at 145 Broadway, Buffalo, NY 14203, at the intersection of Michigan Avenue and Broadway.
