The Brazos Valley celebrated a special anniversary in African American history.

On Sunday, the Brazos Valley African-American Museum commemorated its first anniversary. The public was invited for cake and punch and the opportunity to tour the museum.

Mell and Wille Pruitt, founders of museum, say the goal of the museum is to offer inspiration to the next generation. They say they are pleased their dream to preserve African-American history is here for everyone to enjoy.

"It's just wonderful," Mell Pruitt said. It's a dream that you'd never thought you would see in reality, but it's a blessing."

The celebration ended with a performance by a local dance team.
