Our Story

www.aadcch.org Click PayPal under Membership - Support Obama Hawaiian Africana Museum to honor the 44th U.S. President’s birthplace and early childhood years... Aloha and Mahalo Nui Loa for your Kokua! Donate in any amount ($5, $10, $15 $25 to help us build his monument...

New Name “Obama Hawaiian Africana Museum” dba parent name Diversity Cultural Center Hawai'i (AADCCH) was founded in 1997 as a museum repository to archive 200 years of African descent history in Hawaii. The purpose is to share and tell the story of the settlers past and present history in the Hawaiian Islands including the birthplace of the 44th U.S. President, Barack Obama’s legacy and early childhood years.

The Obama Museum’s target audience to educate youth, the future generation to empower their lives and increase appreciation about their cultural identity. Our archival collection is an important component for broadening this knowledge onsite, social studies classrooms, the community and visitor. In addition, we are making preparation to launch a Capital Campaign to acquire a facility to enable the Obama Museum to engage in broadening the intercultural conversation about Hawaii’s ethnic diverse communities to promote cohesiveness and harmony. The facility will stand as a symbol to honor the birthplace of the 44th U.S. President.
