About Us

Our Mission

The Nebraska Black History Art Contest uses art to teach history in the hope that we learn from our past, so we do not repeat its mistakes. We use art and history to teach tolerance, acceptance and the “Golden Rule,” which tells us to treat others as you would want to be treated.
