The museum was founded by lynching survivor, James Cameron in 1988. It is a memorial that promotes racial repair and reconciliation while shining a light on the African American experience. The museum closed in 2008, two years after Cameron died.

Ground was broken for the new physical site of America’s Black Holocaust Museum in 2017, but they struggled to open the doors because of a lack of artifacts, exhibits, staff and educational programming.
