The Alliance of HBCU Museums and Galleries (the Alliance) is a non-profit organization comprised of eleven member colleges and universities classified as Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), each of which maintains and operates a museum or gallery and associated collections of art. Our primary goals are:
- to contribute to the diversification of the museum and art world through the preparation and training of outstanding students and recent alumni from our member HBCUs in museum studies, art conservation, archives, and artistry.
- to support the preservation, sustenance and operations of our member museums and galleries and their collections and staff.
Some of our work is featured in the following publications:
