On October 6, 2018, w​e proudly celebrated with thanksgiving and humility our fifth year of operations for the Kannapolis African-American Museum and Cultural Center, Inc. (KAA-MaCC).  The ideas for building a museum began about 12 years ago, but never got off the paper until early 2011. The corporation was named in 2013 and was incorporated on October 2, 2013. Now, KAA-MaCC, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) exempt organization, effective October 13, 2013.
