The Center of African American Art and History (CAAAH) located at 21 W. 16th Street Holland, MI 49423 is a 501c3 non-profit youth development agency that celebrates diversity and engages community. The CAAAH was developed in 2009 to draw inspiration and guidance from fascinating historical stories, literature and art. These inspirations, built upon the existing collection of African American materials related to the early settlement of Blacks in Western Michigan, helped to get a sense of how they lived, their accomplishments, and their interactions with each other and those around them.
