The Los Angeles Science Center celebrated the African Americans Independence on Oct. 29.

The museum held an art exhibition presenting African Americans who ended segregation and contributed with their work, music, writting and bravery.

“It is amazing how we as African Americans have come to be professors and singers,” said Dr. James Lamar, who was proud of his ancestors’ accomplishments.

Some of the pieces that were displayed were:

  • Michael Jordan’s jersey,
  • Rosa Parks’ finger prints,
  • Martin Luther King’s jail cell and
  • Malcom X and Tupac’s diary.

The museum is open to the public .
