“Footsteps to You,” which includes the Isaacs Collection, is an exhibit about the historic experiences of people from many African nations and leads to the beginning of the Underground Railroad at the end of the 18th century. With a desire to inspire future generations, we are sharing the accumulation of stories, artifacts, mementos, and art from our walk through history.

Selections from the Isaacs Art Collection will be included in the exhibit Dr. Amos Isaacs and his wife Lorraine have accumulated a collection of more than 900 original artifacts from Africa that represent numerous tribes, cultures, and traditions.

Arthur Smith is the lead docent and storyteller, and he has a passion for the history and cultures that he would like to share with others. His passion stems from his traveling loving family (eight countries and counting). Arthur volunteers with the Black Voice Foundation and has spent 2012 researching the Isaacs Art Collection.
