PHOENIX — Police are investigating after racial slurs and swastikas were spray-painted on Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center in Phoenix.

The vandalism was discovered Sunday on the fence and ground in front of the building.

The museum is dedicated to the history of African Americans in Arizona. 

“The George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center is a historical preservation site that is dedicated to the Collection, Documentation, Preservation, Study, and Dissemination of the History and Culture of Africans and Americans of African Descent in Arizona.

Affectionately known as The Carver Museum, we carry out its mission through exhibitions, archives, collections and a variety of community educational programs designed to explore the roles of African derived Americans in shaping the history of Phoenix and the state of Arizona,” their website states. 

It is unclear if Phoenix police have a suspect(s) description.
