In particular, the museum explores this journey through the power of place by acknowledging the achievements of Africans and African Americans, exhibiting how their labor, resistance, and ingenuity has shaped every aspect of our world. Located in Charleston, S.C., the museum sits at the historically sacred site of Gadsden’s Wharf, one of the country’s most prolific slave trading ports.
IAAM is a champion of authentic, empathetic storytelling of American history and is thus one of the nation’s newest platforms for the disruption of institutionalized racism as it evolves today.
The African Ancestors Memorial Garden - a collection of gardens and artistic installations that sprawl the IAAM grounds, will be free and open to the public.
