As the nation’s premiere Black history traveling exhibit, the the Black History 101 Mobile Museum is an award winning collection of over 10,000 original artifacts of Black memorabilia dating from the trans-Atlantic slave trade era to hip-hop culture.
Intentionally displayed in non-traditional museum spaces such as classrooms, conference rooms, libraries, galleries and even living rooms, the Black History 101 Mobile Museum offers audiences a fresh and creative lens to view history while developing a broader appreciation for museums in general and providing a “safe space” to have honest conversations about race and social justice.
Among this unique collection are rare artifacts representing categories including (but not limited to) slavery, politics, Jim Crow, science, religion, education, music, sports, and civil rights. Some of the highlights of the collection are documents signed by Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, Mary Mcleod Bethune, W.E.B. Dubois, Paul Robeson, Rosa Parks, Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., George Washington Carver, Lena Horne, Carter G. Woodson, Angela Davis, and many other historical icons.
The Black History 101 Mobile Museum has visited 41 states sharing “ourstory” at over 500 institutions reaching tens of thousands of visitors in diverse spaces including colleges, K-12 schools, corporations, conferences, libraries, museums, festivals, religious institutions, and cultural events.
