One of the world's most complete collections of African-American history is making a Tulsa stop. 

The Black History 101 Mobile Museum is the Greenwood Cultural Center. Its founder admits some of the items are emotionally unsettling, but it's not all depressing.

As well as documenting slavery and lynchings, the museum also showcases the impact African Americans have had on the music industry.

Professor Griff from the band, Public Enemy, says this collection is unique. That's why he says he's willing to travel the country promoting it.

"There's a rich history that I think is kind of left out," Professor Griff said. "We have to tell our own story."

The Black History 101 Mobile Museum will be at the Greenwood Cultural Center through Saturday. Tickets are $4.
