New Strategic Plan

 The Amistad Center has a new strategic plan!

After several months of research, analysis, and stakeholder engagement our Board of Trustees has developed and adopted a plan that will guide our operations over the next three years. This was a timely labor of love that has resulted in clarity around our strengths and opportunities for improvement and our goals for the future.  Some of the words in our mission and vision have changed but our commitment to the art and culture of people of African descent and to serving our community is unwavering. 

Highlights of our 2024-2027 Strategic Plan:


Our Mission

To honor, preserve and celebrate in community the art and cultural contributions of all people of African descent.

Our Vision

Our Promise

We complete the story of America through creative expression and inspiring cross-cultural conversations and experiences.

  • Animate the Collection and Exhibits


Strengthen Internal Capacity:

  • Attract Creative, Resourceful and Engaged Leadership
