The International African American Museum on Gadsden’s Wharf has been in the making for several years. Many individuals and groups have made moving this project forward possible.

We appreciate the early financial support from the following:

  • The City of Charleston
  • The Federal Government
  • The South Carolina State Government
  • The County of Charleston

We thank Moody/Nolan in partnership with Pei Cobb Freed & Partners for the excellent design work provided the project. Ralph Appelbaum Associates have contributed much in terms of guiding the design process and completing the website development. Their combined work has given a new vision for the site as a national landmark. We look forward to working with the National Park Service in fulfilling this vision for the project.

Finally, we extend our appreciation to the team of scholars who gave generously of their time and ideas to provide the International African American Museum with a solid scholarly intellectual base for its interpretive exhibitions and programs.
