THE COMPLEX===The unique collections of artifacts, documents, and displays are housed in several buildings along a picturesque nature trail. The complex can be experienced through a professionally guided tour or independent exploration. Either tour is an enlightening experience. You'll learn the real story of African American contributions to things we see and use in our daily lives....for example, ice cream, fire extinguishers or shredded coconut.
AACC TOURS====All tours began with a stroll down the C. M. Palmer Nature Trall by the W. Maner Brooks Memorial Gardens and a bird sanctuary. This refreshing occurrence is a "must see" at anytime of year. Then, visit hand-crafted "houses" which exhibit different elements and special programs about African American contributions. All programs are tailored to your special interest.
THE GENERAL TOUR====Guided overview of the AACC'S general program (30 min.) or Guided tour with lecture provides on interpretive capsule of all programs (1 hr.)

THE AACC is in the process of building a 30' x 15' replica of the slave ship "Amistad". This historic vessel will span the Dry Steam Creek at the complex and will be available for tours to view the mutiny scene of Cinque and the African hostages. Visitors will see how slaves were transported through the Middle Passage. Opening date is dependent upon the availability of funding.
