Buffalo's African-American history on display at Michigan Avenue stops

Tour the home of the Buffalo reverend who helped establish what would become Buffalo's National Urban League and NAACP branches.

Or check out the club that hosted jazz greats like Count Basie and Billie Holiday.

And you can visit the pre-Civil War church that hosted abolition and civil rights leaders like Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington.

The anchors of the Michigan Avenue African American Heritage Corridor will be open from noon to 4 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through September. The sites include the Nash House Museum, home of the Rev. J. Edward Nash; Colored Musicians Club; Michigan Street Baptist Church; WUFO Studios Museum; and the Jesse Clipper Monument.

On Aug. 2 and 3, Common Council President Darius G. Pridgen will sponsor the cost of admission for individuals.
