The Ancient Africa Enslavement & Civil War Museum was developed to educate and uplift schools, communities and people of all ages and races by presenting and interpreting the history of African people from antiquity through slavery and the Civil War in positive and creative ways.
The primary purpose of the AAECWM is to present an informed depiction of the African-American experience that would serve to unite and empower people to maximize their cultural, social and academic development.
The Museum is a provocative and courageous place, tackling one of the most controversial eras in history. It focuses on the history of Ancient Africa, Enslavement, and The Civil War through displays, discussions, and programs.
The museum also gives visitors the chance to talk about the effects of slavery at the end of the tour and on our social media pages, after they return home.
