Since 1994, the St. Paul Community Baptist Church has transformed into The MAAFA Museum as part of our annual Commemoration of The MAAFA.  During this walking tour, visitors will walk through time reliving experiences from African, American and African-American history.   

The MAAFA Museum features authentic slave artifacts from the African Relic Museum in Walterboro, South Carolina and features art, wood carvings, quilts and historic vignettes. 
The MAAFA Museum tour is appropriate for adults and students in grades 4 and higher.
