Under this legislation, the KAAHC's mission is to identify and promote awareness of significant African American influences on the history and culture of Kentucky and to support and encourage the preservation of Kentucky African American heritage and historic sites.

The commission is administratively attached to the Kentucky Heritage Council, with the council providing staff assistance and program oversight.
