Ways to Support ABHM?

August 6th marks the beginning of Milwaukee’s Bronzeville Week! ABHM will kick off the week with an in-person discussion about arts, culture, and community.

Join us at our museum’s physical location at from 401 W. North Avenue from 5 to 7:30PM tonight.

Next up is a discussion with Milwaukee’s own Jacob Latimore, an actor, singer, and dancer, on August 10th. This panel takes place at 12PM. Please click here to pre-register for the event.

Then, stop by America’s Black Holocaust Museum for free guided tours between 2 and 3PM and 5 and 6PM on August 11th. Tours take place via trolley and are hosted by ABHM’s own resident historian, Dr. Robert Smith.

You can enjoy free entry to the museum before or after your tour!

We hope to see you there!

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.
