Ways to Support ABHM?

At America’s Black Holocaust Museum, our website serves as the virtual counterpart to the physical museum, which is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The backbone of our virtual museum is our online galleries that explore issues such as slavery, the Civil Rights Movement, Reconstruction, racial repair, and lynching, among other topics.

In an effort to make browsing the site easier and to give visitors a different way to browse the content in our virtual musem, we have introduced Self-Guided Tours. Rather than browse in chronological order (which you can still do from our galleries page), you can browse topics important to ABHM’s mission and four themes at your convenience.

Self-Guided Tours offer a new way for ABHM’s virtual museum visitors to understand issues impacting the Black community

By creating this alternative way to navigate our website, we hope to connect events and social forces through time to show the long impact of racism in the United States and worldwide. Events of anti-Black violence are not independent from each other. Instead, they build upon centuries of racism, which continues to effect those of the African diaspora, which our self-guided tours highlights.

Get started with self-guided tours.

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.
