The Museum of African American History was incorporated in 1967 to preserve, conserve, and interpret the contributions of people of African descent and those who have found common cause with them in the struggle for liberty, dignity, and justice for all Americans. Through exhibitions, education projects, public programs, and the display of unique items from our collections, the Museum places the African-American experience in an accurate social, cultural, and historical perspective. The Museum serves the public at its historic sites in Boston and Nantucket, as well as with Black Heritage Trail® tours and a variety of exhibits and educational programs for the general visiting public, school groups, teachers and other special audiences.
