Northwest African American Museum

Northwest African American Museum is a Seattle institution committed to the African American experience in the Northwest.  The museum tells the “story of their journey to this region, the establishment of a vibrant community and the ways in which they have thrived.” The Museum’s exhibits and programs feature the visual arts, music, crafts, literature and history of African Americans in the Northwest. Cognizant of the Black community’s continuous evolution, NAAM focuses on African Americans whose route to the new world was through slavery as well as recent immigrants arriving from places such as Somalia, Sudan and Ethiopia.

During his time at Shunpike, principal Andy Fife helped with board finance by facilitating and training board members in an emerging finance committee on board accountability and finance committee best practices.
