The Slavery and Civil War Museum

Pause to reflect on the historically compelling aspects of America’s past by visiting the Slavery and Civil War Museum—the only museum in the country offering a sensory reenactment of the history of enslavement.

Established in June 2002, in affiliation with the National Voting Rights Museum, the Slavery and Civil War Museum presents a historical perspective of the Civil War and slavery in provocative side-by-side exhibits, temporary and permanent displays, and virtual interactive visual exchanges.

Via a 90 minute presentation titled “Footprints of Our Ancestors” museum visitors will experience the fortitude of those who suffered the auction blocks and torture of the enslavement of Africans.

Following the “Footprints of Our Ancestors” tour, the Museum provides a forum for open discussion about the painful  effects of slavery among people of different ages, races, nationalities, religions, and cultural traditions that have viewed the presentation.

Visitors to the Slavery and Civil War Museum will experience an engaging educationally balanced presentation of both sides of a very controversial period in the history of America.

Members of the Museum staff are available for storytelling, workshops, and historical presentations.  For additional information or Slavery and Civil War Museum tour details, call 334.418.4889
