The Bruce R. Watkins Cultural Heritage Center is dedicated to the contributions made by African Americans both past and present to Kansas City. Bruce R. Watkins himself was an African-American political and social activist. He accomplished much in his time as the first African-American elected to Kansas City's City Council and the first African-American to nearly win election as Kansas City Mayor. The Cultural Center acts as a memorial to his inspiring contributions and his fight for equal rights. Keeping kids in the picture, the Bruce R. Watkins Cultural Heritage Center houses a permanent exhibit space and children’s workspace on its first floor. The main gallery is on the second floor. Films, classes and workshops, stage performances and special ceremonies combine at this historic center to bring the past into the present and create hope for a better future.
