About the Bruce R. Watkins Cultural Heritage Center

This living museum stands in tribute to the legacy of Kansas City’s early African-American pioneers and embodies artistic, cultural and social history of the African-American experience.
 
 

The Center is named in honor of Bruce R. Watkins, a political and social activist. Watkins was fueled by the need to recognize and preserve the varied contributions African-Americans made to the development of Kansas City. The Center opened in December 1989 as the outgrowth of Watkins’ efforts. Construction of the Center was made possible through the work and contributions of the Bruce R. Watkins Foundation Inc., the Kansas City, MO Parks and Recreation Department and the State of Missouri.
