WELCOME

Our mission is to inspire and empower people to value and preserve their historical journey. We hope our programs encourage and motivate future generations to learn how people born in bondage, held as property, and subsequently emancipated could then study, earn degrees and become world leaders. The sharing of our history, which was previously omitted, adds significant value to the narrative of “Little Dixie” and the community of the formerly enslaved citizens of Tipton, Missouri.

DONATE TODAY

We encourage you to donate today to Opportunity 1888 Foundation, Inc. for the continued restoration and maintenance of Harrison School and the Foundation’s Programs.
