Welcome to the Tuskegee History Center.

We want to share our stories of Tuskegee Alabama’s remarkable history, along with the multicultural history of Macon County’s three distinct cultures and peoples.  One historic place – Tuskegee/Macon County, three historic cultures – Native American, European American and African American. 

Our history is one of triumphs and tragedies, from civil rights victories with state and national impact, to a medical travesty of international significance.  Visit our museum and visitor center to discover this part of the South which is the scene of so much wonderful history that has both shaped America, and transformed America – pre-colonial America, and the more recent, 20th century America.






50th Anniversary of Tuskegee Public School Desegregation.

In continuing to share the stories of Tuskegee Alabama’s remarkable history, the Tuskegee Human and Civil Rights Multicultural Center 
hosted an event that shared the stories of three students that were active participants in the 1963 Macon County School desegregation attempt in the Fall of 1963.
