Exhibition: The African American Experience Slavery 1619-1866

The Holocaust & Intolerance Museum of New Mexico proudly launches Phase I of its permanent exhibit, The African American Experience: Slavery 1619-1866. This newly created compelling exhibit replaces the museum's former one and will include three phases, each representing different aspects of the African American experience. The exhibit in its entirety is expected to be completed in 2018. Phase I depicts the hardships endured by the Africans who were brought to North America beginning in 1619 and includes the harsh conditions and treatment they received during their transport. The exhibit further highlights the daily life of slaves including enslaved women and slave codes that restricted their freedoms and governed their everyday lives. It also provides a glimpse of Civil War--events leading up to it, the war itself, and its aftermath including the Emancipation Proclamation and reactions to it.
