About Us

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.
