Welcome to ABHM!

ABHM exists 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. It lives entirely online.

A few of the things you can do here:

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

• Watch a video about the only known survivor of a lynching.

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