The Kannapolis African-American Museum and Cultural Center, Inc. (KAA-MaCC) seeks to be recognized as a national model for documenting, interpreting, and presenting local history and culture.  We will build a museum and cultural center to serve, engage, and enrich the community.


The KAA-MaCC mission is to collect and preserve the history and culture of African-Americans in Cabarrus and Rowan County, North Carolina. Our goal is to serve as a bridge between the African-American community and public, fostering inclusiveness, diversity, and community engagement.



On October 7, 2023, we  commemorated the tenth year of our founding as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, and celebrated the contributions of Cabarrus and Rowan County natives, our supporters and partners.  Although ideas for building a museum began over 12 years ago, we continue to lay the foundation for building a museum and cultural center in Cabarrus/ Rowan County, North Carolina. Stay tuned for updates!
