About International African American Museum
By telling the story of the journey of hundreds of thousands of enslaved Africans who
were taken from West Africa, entered our young nation in Charleston SC, endured
hardship and cruelty, and then contributed so significantly to the greatness of America,
The International African American Museum seeks to honor the site where so many enslaved Africans arrived and thousands died, tell of important lives that have been overlooked in most history books, and promote compassion and empathy across all races and ethnicities.
