Johnson (Zuggie Tate), singer Chaka Khan (Siaara Freeman), freedom fighter Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Josiah Quarles), dancer Pearl Primus (Afi Scruggs), poet Sonia Sanchez (Nailah Muhammad), jazz saxophonist Wayne Shorter (Robert Smith III), fashion journalist Andre Leon Talley (Kortney Morrow), and novelist Jesmyn Ward (Dr. Brenda R.

BLAX Museum (created by Michelle R. Smith in 2018) is a FREE annual arts showcase that is open to all forms and dedicated to honoring notable black figures in American history and culture.
