The American History Traveling Museum will be featured at WISC in partnership with our BSD Equity Team.
This museum chronicles the history of Africans in Africa (prior to chattel slavery); the experiences and impacts of slavery and the Jim Crow Era; and the many contributions African Americans have had on scientific, cultural and technological innovations in the U.S. and the world.
The museum has collected an assortment of artifacts that symbolize the African experience in the Americas and Europe. It displays both relics of family moments and of a painful past. Witness the African American, patented inventions such as: the ironing board, golf tees, pencil sharpener, and cellular phone technology; as well as, relics which serve as reminders of chattel slavery such as: iron collar & shackles, branding irons, and a shotgun rifle. These artifacts are displayed within the exhibit and much more — photos and oral presentations.
