The American Legacy Black Hockey History Tour will debut in New York on Saturday.
The 525-square foot mobile museum will look back at the founders, trailblazers, history makers and Stanley Cup champions, and look ahead to the next generation of young stars, NHL officials, broadcasters and women in the game.
The museum will travel to schools, community rinks and NHL arenas during February.
"They're going to see 200 years of black achievement in hockey," American Legacy founder Rodney Reynolds said. "Starting from the 1800s with the development of the Coloured Hockey League in Nova Scotia all the way through 2018 and looking at players that are part of the sport today. It's a fascinating journey that attendees of the mobile truck will have an opportunity to experience."
