Black History Timeline
Now More Than Ever
Every day at the Black History Museum we tell stories about Black history, art, and culture. Why? Because our history is deeper, richer, and more significant than a handful of dates and events than learned about in school. The Black History Museum offers a dynamic multi-dimensional learning experience which includes history and art exhibitions, community conversations, literary presentations, social gatherings, documentary screenings, historic portrayals, and cultural activities. We also partner with other organizations to broaden our reach and make Black history, art, and culture even more meaningful and memorable. But we can’t continue to do this without your help. Many thanks to our steadfast supporters, who have played a pivotal role in preserving our important past and inspiring a bright new future. We sincerely appreciate their invaluable support and the museum’s continued success is dependent on the ongoing generosity of current members and the recruitment of new members.
Here are four ways you can help:
- Join and renew your membership annually so we can count on your active involvement;
- Bring your family to visit, learn, and share our history;
- Make an annual donation because each and every dollar helps our ongoing operations; and
- Become an ambassador by sharing your experience and inviting others to become members and supporters too.
