.

The Charles H. Wright MAAH is the pride of Detroit. It is a fitting structure to house the history of the 85% of Detroit's population that has an African heritage. The nobility of its chareg is reflected in the massive carved doors which noisily swing open to admit the visitor. Upon ascending the stairs one enters the magnificient glass domed area. Enlaid in the floor are plaques honoring African-American heroes. There is space for additional honoree. The plagues are encircled by a painted motif which includes cotton bolls to represent the effects of slavery on the life of African Americans. This imposing area is just one facet of the museum which contains a theatre and exhibition areas. No one should miss this moving encapsulation of blacks in The United States with its emphasis on Detroit and Michigan.
