Life And Times In Black American History (LATIBAH) Collard Green Museum

  • Recreation

Essential Information

720 Tuckaseegee Rd.
Charlotte, NC


This is not your typical artifact-filled, self-guided museum experience. Founded in NoDa in 2009 and relocated to the West End in early 2014, the LATIBAH museum hosts community drum circles, lecture series, and artists-in-residence, in addition to its vivid exhibits. Guided tours take visitors through art installations that represent snapshots of African American history, from the great Egyptian thinkers to the Underground Railroad to a replica of the Door to No Return, storage cells in West Africa where hundreds of thousands of people were held before being loaded onto slave ships. The museum’s mission is to change perspectives and build the self-esteem of a people who have been bombarded with negative imagery about their past and present.
