About Us

The True Black History Museum is an extraordinary collection of rare and authentic artifacts, dating from the 1600's to the 21st century.  The Collection was established to preserve the history of Black People and to educate others of the many great contributions that Black people have made to humanity.  The Collection takes you on a journey through the use of these artifacts through the African American experience. Artifacts from the collection range from the many great civilizations in Africa, through the Mid Atlantic Slave Trade, Slavery, The Civil War, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, the Civil Rights / Black Power movement, through the modern day. The Collection celebrates and highlights contributions of African Americans in the arts, sciences, sports, entertainment, education and politics.  
"Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history."
