Ways to Support ABHM?

ABHM is proud to announce its next virtual book club meeting–a free event!

This month’s book selection is Voices of Milwaukee Bronzeville (2021) by Dr. Sandra Jones. Dr Jones is a lecturer of African and Diaspora Studies at UW Milwaukee with a research focus on African American knowledge systems and Black women’s literary interpretive practice, among others.

We’d love for you to read along and share your thoughts about Dr. Jones’ latest book on June 15th over Zoom!

You can check out this book from many libraries, including the Milwaukee Public Library. It’s also available to purchase locally from Boswell Books, the Bronzeville Collective, and Niche Book Bar and through large booksellers such as Bookshop.org. You can also purchase the book directly (link to Facebook with verified Paypal link).

Comments Are Welcome

Note: We moderate submissions in order to create a space for meaningful dialogue, a space where museum visitors – adults and youth –– can exchange informed, thoughtful, and relevant comments that add value to our exhibits.

Racial slurs, personal attacks, obscenity, profanity, and SHOUTING do not meet the above standard. Such comments are posted in the exhibit Hateful Speech. Commercial promotions, impersonations, and incoherent comments likewise fail to meet our goals, so will not be posted. Submissions longer than 120 words will be shortened.
