Association of African American Museums


February is Black History Month. A time to pay tribute to the generations of African Americans who struggled with adversity to achieve full citizenship in American society.

Bounce has a suggestion for you and your family to learn more about our important role in the history of this nation.  We ask that you visit one of the member institutions of the Association of African American Museums (AAAM) in your area.

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

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.
