Ways to Support ABHM?
It’s not every museum you can visit from the comfort of your own home!
In this week’s Black Nouveau program, MPTV producers highlighted ABHM’s 21st century form of armchair travel and education.
This week’s program Trippin’ included a virtual visit to ABHM and describes the rich historical and contemporary resources to be found on the site. Trippin’ also feature three other Wisconsin-based museums that offer important exhibitions about local and national African American history:
- The Wisconsin Black Historical Society and Museum in Milwaukee, where exhibits focus on the roles that African Americans have historically played in the city and state.
- The National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, which contains an extensive exhibit about the history of Pullman porters.
- The Milton House Museum in Milton, a very active and important stop on the Underground Railroad.
Here is Trippin’ in its entirety. The segment on ABHM begins at minute 19:45.
“Black Nouveau” is an award-winning program that is regarded as one of the most accurate and positive perspectives of African American life in Milwaukee. It offers messages that promote positive images, interviews and profiles of African-American movers and shakers.
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.
