In order to preserve and protect the history of some of the outstanding contributions made by African Americans toward the development of Raleigh, a local and regional museum should be constructed on the grounds of Dix Park to continue the program of the African American Cultural Complex (AACC).
The museum needs are:
- permanent and rotating exhibit space
- a flexible space for public gatherings, performances, banquets, and conferences
- administrative offices
- storage areas
- an outdoor performance space
Note that many of these facilities could be shared with other museums and cultural organizations.
