The Domini Hoskins Black History Museum appears in Redwood City just once per year, in February. The traveling museum is unique not only because of its limited appearances, but also for what’s inside. Carolyn Hoskins constructs the 11,000 square foot museum in rented spaces; it features artifacts from numerous categories including sports and music, but also from the Civil Rights movement, and Obama’s presidential campaign.

Hoskins is a member of the NFL Alumni Northern California executive committee, which sponsors the exhibit. She was awarded a “Quiet Hero” award by state senator Jerry Hill in February for her community contributions.

The museum’s lease has been extended to Mar. 31. Then, Hoskins will recruit family and friends to pack up the thousands of artifacts into plastic bins before moving them to a rented storage unit — the museum’s permanent home, for now. The exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
