Regional arts and cultural museum dedicated to the education, identification, acquisition, research, collection, exhibition, presentation and preservation of visual art forms, artists, programs and documents reflective of African American life and culture. Using the tool of the arts, its goal is to bridge the gap of understanding among the cultures.

In 1917, Old Calvary Baptist Church was built in the heart of the African American community in Wichita, Kansas. In 1972, when the congregation moved to a new building, Doris Kerr Larkins made a stand and decided to save the church, along with her sisters and the community. In 1974, the stand formulated the First National Black Historical Society and in 1993, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
