Events Calendar


This virtual museum promotes global awareness of the harmful legacies of enslavement and Jim Crow in the United States and the challenges faced by African Americans today. We also highlight Black resilience and achievements in every field — from arts and culture to education, economics, science, and more.

This Events Calendar presents some of the many events taking place around Milwaukee, Wisconsin — the birthplace of America’s Black Holocaust Museum — as well as around the USA, Africa, and the far-flung African Diaspora.

While we feature the on-site and online (virtual) events of America’s Black Holocaust Museum, we also sample other events that promote historical, educational and cultural awareness consistent with ABHM’s mission of racial justice, reconciliation, and healing.
