Museum

The Mayme A. Clayton Library & Museum (MCLM) presents an annual display of thought-provoking exhibitions in its four (4) exhibit galleries. To complement and highlight our exhibits and additional aspects of the collections, MCLM presents a variety of public programming including performances, readings, film screenings, concerts, lectures, book signings, special events, and workshops.

MCLM also offers a range of engaging educational programs for students in grades K-12. These programs seek to provide a more comprehensive understanding of African and African American contributions to American history and culture. Educational experiences are designed to engage students in interactive hands-on learning encounters with primary documents and original artifacts from MCLM's collections. MCLM also offers informative workshops throughout the school year to help California teachers integrate African-American history and culture into the classroom.
