The African American Firefighter Museum (Museum) is celebrating its 20th Anniversary as a premier cultural destination in Los Angeles. Our non-profit public benefit corporation is dedicated to collecting, conserving and sharing the heritage of African American Firefighters through collaboration and education.
The Board of Directors is currently re-imagining the Museum’s space, programming and exhibits. As part of that effort, we want to recognize and share the stories of African American Firefighters in the Southern California region. Our new exhibit celebrates the FIRST African Americans to be hired departments spread across the Southern California region, including male and female firefighters and volunteers. .
This exhibit will showcase the triumphs and struggles of the men and women in SoCal Fire Departments and will provide opportunities for our visitors to engage in dialogue surrounding inclusion, diversity and perseverance as you tour our facility.
A reception to honor these pioneers will be held at our Museum on Sunday June 25, 2017. We invite you and family to join us for the special occasion.
