Welcome to ABHM!

ABHM’s mission is to increase the public’s awareness and understanding of the magnitude of the Black Holocaust, its ongoing impact on American society, and what we can do about it.

ABHM is a virtual museum.

A few of the things you can do here:

• Visit the Galleries to learn about little-known parts of African American History.

• Catch up on what’s happening today in the ongoing struggle for rights and respect for African Americans.

• Help preserve and publish the only memoir by a lynching survivor by donating to our Know the Past • Heal the Present campaign:
