The Our Story Matters Gallery is a partnership between The Columbia Museum of Art, the USC Center for Civil Rights History and Research, and Columbia SC 63: Our Story Matters. It features preeminent exhibitions on African American life and culture in Columbia from Reconstruction through the student activism of the 1960s and 1970s.

The current exhibition, Intersections on Main Street: African American Life in Columbia, shares the stories of African American life in Columbia from Reconstruction through the 1970s, using a wide variety of materials including photographs, newspaper clippings, maps, and historical artifacts that highlight people's lives and experiences in downtown Columbia. Images from the studio of famed photographer Richard Samuel Roberts form the core of this exhibition focused on African American history, resilience, and ingenuity.
