His extensive collection of African American objects includes iron slave collars, lawn jockeys and "Mammy" flour sacks, as well as Tiger Woods Wheaties boxes, an Ebony magazine cover featuring Stevie Wonder and a wax figure of sports icon Jackie Robinson, along with many other items. “I wanted a museum that was unbiased — that lets people see it all and think what they want,” Belgrave said.
