BOARD OF DIRECTORS.
AAHC was started in early 2018 by a small group of community leaders. Interested in promoting African American heritage, they were a cross-section of organization leaders, elected officials, religious leaders, long-time New Bern residents, individuals, relatively new to the region, and educators. Their passion and resolve led to the formation of this nonprofit organization.
The AAHC mission is to present the historic impact and progression of African American heritage and culture in our region.
