The Kansas African American Museum is a historical museum, dedicated to the lives, ordeals and experiences of the African-American community in the State of Kansas. The building was first built in 1917 as the Calvary Baptist Church, which was considered to be the cornerstone and an important landmark of Wichita's African-American community. In 1972, the church was relocated and the first National Black Historical Society was set up to safeguard the historical building. In 1993, the building was added to the National Register of Historical Places and by 1997, it was renamed the Kansas African American Museum. This museum is especially renowned for its annual celebrations and events, including the Cranford Village Celebration, Doris Kerr Larkins Brunch and Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration.
