America's Black Holocaust Museum (ABHM) builds public awareness of the harmful legacies of slavery in America and promotes racial repair, reconciliation, and healing. We envision a society that remembers its past in order to shape a better future – a nation undivided by race where every person matters equally.
Founded in 1984 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, ABHM’s building closed during the Great Recession of 2008. A community group formed to honor the vision and mission of ABHM’s founder, Dr. James Cameron. We put its exhibits online and developed educational programming in libraries, churches, and other facilities locally, regionally, and nationally. Now, in addition to this Virtual Museum, a new physical museum space is about to open!
