Located in the former home of the late Solomon D. Spady, the most prominent African American educator and community leader in Delray Beach from 1922 to 1957, the museum opened in July 2001 and is the only African American Cultural Heritage museum of its kind in Palm Beach County. We are supported in part by the sponsorship of the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, Cultural Council of Palm Beach County and Delray Yacht Cruises.
The Spady Museum's Youth Cultural Empowerment Camp will challenge youth to decide whether or not their cultural heritage is being preserved, if it is important to preserve it, and if knowledge of it has an impact on their daily lives. Camp registration opens Tuesday, June 23rd. Camp starts Tuesday, July 7th.
