Terence was the tour guide for the NBPA’s Black History Virtual Tour on 2/23/21. He did a great job! He is very knowledgeable about the museum, has great energy when presenting, and you can tell he enjoys teaching others about Miami and Black law enforcement history. This is definitely a tour that locals and visitors should visit.

First of all please be forewarned there is a bridge right next to this museum that is full of homeless people! Please do not walk under this bridge, but rather drive your car or ride share to get to the museum. The bridge has two huge areas under it filled with homeless folks who are not all mentally stable which may result in possible harm to you! We visited this establishment on a Friday afternoon. They seem a bit unorganized at first, not realizing we had a tour at 12:45. They looked at my reservation on my phone and on the board in their office which confirmed our time slot for a tour. The tour guide was very informative and detailed about each exhibit and artifact of the different rooms and courthouse upstairs. It was a plus that our tour guide was a retired Miami police officer who knew the history and lived the history of Miami’s progression pertaining to police work from the 1980s to now. It was awe inspiring to see how the role of racism, segregation, and inequality played in how black officers policed back in the day. From just having a bike and no radio, having criminals ride on the handle bars to the police station to finally getting walkie talkies. It was quite inspirational to see a lot of black firsts in the first black precincts history and the assimilation into Miami’s police department. I was even privileged with the opportunity to take a photo in the judges robes in the courtroom upstairs. Overall it was a very unique and necessary experience for us as black tourists in Miami. We purchased a t shirt at the end for $20 which was also one of a kind! Please visit this museum if you go to overtown because it is a living piece of history and a gem of the community!
