Housed in a local landmark building that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the YMICC runs programs in cultural arts, community education and economic development.

Today, the newly refurbished center continues its tradition of community service. Its galleries feature exhibits, programs, classes and performance that present African-American art, culture and history at their best.
