Welcome to ABHM!

ABHM builds public awareness of the harmful legacies of slavery in America and promotes racial repair, reconciliation, and healing.

We envision a society that remembers its past in order to shape a better future – a nation undivided by race where every person matters equally.


 ABHM is an entirely online museum!

(In the future, ABHM will also be a bricks-and-mortar museum located in Milwaukee WI.)

Some 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 publish the only memoir by a lynching survivor by donating to our Know the Past • Heal the Present campaign.


Attend our free #Do Black Lives Matter? series with Head Griot Reggie Jackson – Milwaukee’s Villard Square Public Library  – August 3, 5, 10, & 12, 2015 5:30-7:30pm
