We are Thomasville’s First Black History Museum, established in 1995 to educate individuals about the history and culture of African Americans locally and nationally. The museum was founded by African-American historian, James “Jack” Hadley who has preserved over 4,669 pieces of African American artifacts with emphasis on Thomasville’s First Black Achievers, state and national achievers that commemorate their lives and accomplishments.
