Association of African American Museums

As an Institutional member of the Association of African American Museums (Black Museums), we are happy to share information about their organization on this page.  Please visit their website for a more in depth view of their services and programs.  

“The Association of African American Museums (AAAM) is a non-profit member organization established to support African and African American focus museums nationally and internationally, as well as the professionals who protect, preserve and interpret African and African American art, history and culture.

Established as the single representative and principal voice of the African American museum movement, the Association seeks to strengthen and advocate for the interests of institutions and individuals committed to the preservation of African-derived cultures.

The services provided by AAAM enhance the ability of those museums to serve the needs and interests of persons of African ancestry and those who wish to know more about the art, history and culture of African-derived cultures.”

They celebrated their 40th Anniversary in 2018 and Charlene Blair was recognized as an Emerging Museum Professional.
