STONECREST, GA— New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Senior Pastor Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant welcomed a host of special guests to the unveiling and ribbon cutting ceremony of “The Cameroonian Experience” African Textile Museum on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2024.

The museum, located on the New Birth campus at 6400 Woodrow Rd. in the city of Stonecrest, features extraordinary African textiles and artifacts that showcase the national historic and modern textiles of the Republic of Cameroon. The museum was founded by Quenn Ahneva Hilson, who was honored with the nation’s highest award for community service during the celebration.

“New Birth is beyond grateful for partnerships that help illuminate our rich legacy, global influence and uncompromised creativity,” said Dr. Bryant. “We are intentionally creating a celebration of Black and African history and culture 365 days a year and I am thankful to Queen Ahneva Hilson for her vision and diligence in making this idea a reality for the community to enjoy.”
