America’s Black Holocaust Museum (Milwaukee, WI.) Opens

On this date in 1988, America’s Black Holocaust Museum (ABHM) opened.  Located in Milwaukee, WI.   James Cameron is the founder of the museum. It educates the public about the injustices people of African heritage in America suffer.

ABHM allows visitors to rethink their assumptions about race and racism.  ABHM’s educational focus serves as a center for education related to the Black Holocaust and a non-threatening forum for sharing thoughts about race and racism in America.

Exposing visitors to historical aspects of African American cultural identity is achieved through educational exhibits, special programming, and guided tours related to six distinct historical eras:
1. Before Captivity in Africa,
2. The Middle Passage,
3. Slavery in the Americas,
4. Reconstruction,
5. Civil Rights, and
6. Modern-Day Injustices

America’s Black Holocaust Museum welcomes visitors of all races and backgrounds and encourages “community” understanding of the nation’s history of racism, prejudice, social change, and cross-cultural understanding.
