A walking tour through the museum informs the visitor about these Nigerian bronze statues of young princesses about to embark upon adulthood.
While many of the museum pieces come from across the ocean, many more come from closer to home.
There are paintings by local artists--
And portraits of key members of Roanoke's black community line the walls-- including a teacher at the area's first predominately black high school.
This 1941 edition of "The Roanoke Tribune" features an advertisement for a concert by Louis Armstrong.
Advance tickets cost 85- cents-- but you'd have to shell out a WHOLE dollar- ten at the door.
While Walters acknowledges the existence of Black History Month, she says the black experience is ALWAYS in the spotlight at the Harrison Museum.

Much of its inventory comes from donations.
These books in the museum's reference library were donated by local doctors.
Because of their age and value, borrowers must wear gloves.
Perhaps one of the most cherished items on display in this recently- published pictorial book entitled, "The Roanoke Valley's African American Heritage".
Walters says changes are on the horizon for the museum--

Walters says school groups, senior citizens, and out- of- town travelers comprise most of the museum's visitors.
The museum is open daily, except Mondays.
Admission is free, but donations are always welcome.

Staff members visit local elementary schools acting out the classic baseball poem, "Casey at the Bat" by Ernest Thayer. Then they challenge the kids to read 10 books and record them on bookmarks provided by the team. If the students succeed, they get two free tickets to an Avalanche game in May.
