African American Museum, formerly known as the Afro-American Cultural & Historical Society Museum, located in Cleveland, Ohio was founded by Icabod Flewellen in 1953. The Museum helps educate young people about the positive contributions of the blacks to the cultures of the world, and to eliminate the distorted portrayals and images of black people. African Past and Present, Civil Movements in America, Reflections of Black Life in Cleveland, and Black Scientists and Inventors are some of the exhibits that are shown in this museum

In partnership with Green Energy Ohio, the museum also hosted an exhibit on the use of solar power in African Villages. The museum installed a solar panel on top of its roof. The parts of the system are inside a clear display case and part of the exhibit. The African Solar Village Outreach Project plans to create creative ways in teaching science and mathematics, mainly Solar Energy, to visitors. Its tours and hands on activities are designed to help understand of how science and culture interrelate in unique ways.
