Highlighting the forthcoming International African American Museum (IAAM) in Charleston, South Carolina. Set to be located at the infamous Gadsden’s Wharf, a historic site associated with the transatlantic slave trade, the museum aims to commemorate the African American experience. Through immersive exhibits, interactive displays, and a rich collection of historical artifacts, IAAM seeks to share untold stories, honor contributions, and shed light on the struggles faced by African Americans throughout history.
