The King-Tisdell Cottage Foundation was established in 1981 in Savannah, under the leadership of noted historian, civil rights activist and preservationist W.W. Law, to research, collect and present the African-American historical and cultural experience to the public. It endeavors to fill the void of information concerning the contributions of African- Americans, especially in Georgia and the Sea Islands of South Carolina. Today, the Foundation operates the Beach Institute African-American Cultural Center, which houses the internationally recognized Ulysses Davis Folk Art Collection and art artifacts from around the African Diaspora. The Beach Institute Garden, with Sankofa themed gates and the Garden Level area, which houses the Gift Shop and the “AMA” Board Room, have been renovated and reopened in recent years. The Foundation also operates the King-Tisdell Cottage. The King-Tisdell Cottage, the birthplace of the movement to preserve African American history in Savannah, serves as a museum interpreting black life in the region from slavery to freedom. It also tells the story of two working class families in the early decades of the 20th century and provides information on the life and work of Mr. W. W. Law.
