  • About Forgotten Images



    David and Sharon McLucas are the owners of Forgotten Images: A Traveling Educational Exhibit and Museum. Their exhibit features thousands of lost and forgotten artifacts that span two centuries of the African American experience in America. After spending nearly 20 years amassing a personal collection of Black History artifacts, the couple has taken their memorabilia on the road with an enormous responsibility; “We are standing on the shoulders of our ancestors, and we want everyone to see how far we’ve come”

    The Forgotten Images Traveling Educational Exhibit and Museum has been featured at schools, churches, and community events throughout Southern California. The Museum is home to more than 2000 items that span from 1600-2015. There are more than 30 themed areas in the constantly growing Forgotten Images exhibit. A sampling of themes found in the exhibit are African American artwork, sports memorabilia, military, literature, theater, music, dolls, Cook Chicken Inn era, Civil Rights Era, Ku Klux Klan, and extensive collections of Aunt Jemima memorabilia. The display highlights all phases of African American history, both positive and negative with the aim of instilling a sense of knowledge, awareness, and responsibility in everyone who comes in contact with the exhibit.
