Dominique Hamilton, the founder of Black Girl Magic Museum, worked with young Black girls when she heard a common theme:  young girls of color didn’t love themselves, understand their values, and did not know and didn’t understand the success of the women that became before them.

She wanted to change that, so she opened the Black Girl Magic Museum.

“After visiting other museums and seeing a void, I was inspired to create The Black Girl Magic Museum to show the future generation what they can be and what they can accomplish,” she said. “To know that they are unique and important. To show everyone that walks into this museum, the impact that black women continue to have. We want everyone to leave knowing that they are magical just the way they are.

The museum features props, paintings, literature, Black history, culture, and the excellence of Black girls and women worldwide to empower, uplift, and teach visitors.

There’s a room called, “Say her name,” that pays respect to Black women killed by police including Breonna Taylor and Atatiana Jefferson.

“I want all girls to know they are unique and important,” Hamilton told The Dallas Morning News. “I want to show everyone who walks into this museum the impact that Black women continue to have. We want everyone to leave knowing they are magical just the way they are.”

The museum, located at 2620 Gus Thomasson Road in Mesquite, is open Thursday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased for $25 for adults and $15 for children 15 and under.
