Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor Commission

Log Number: MH-253108-OMS-23

The Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor Commission will build the capacity of five African American anchor institutions in Buffalo, New York, to develop and expand public programs and exhibitions by creating a Visitor Experience Plan. Representatives from the Michigan Street Baptist Church, the Nash House Museum, the Historic Colored Musicians Club and Museum, and WUFO 1080 AM Black Radio History Collective will collaborate with visitor experience consultants to produce the plan. These anchor institutions preserve stories, collections, and structures on themes ranging from the Buffalo Anti-Slavery Movement, and the Niagara Movement, to the Civil Rights Movement, and the Jazz Age. The visitor experience plan will shape future interpretation, exhibitions and public wayfinding in the corridor through a cohesive narrative that tells the story of the entire Michigan Street Corridor.
