Charleston Regional Business Journal: One Year In – IAAM in Charleston reflects on a conversation ‘long overdue’

By Hollie Moore

Behind the floating architecture of the International African American Museum’s tall walls and pillars stands a story of a past not yet forgotten, and ready to be told.  

Since its opening one year ago today, June 27, thousands of faces have glared through the glass of nearly a dozen displays at the museum. Descendants, historians and curious minds have congregated from across the nation to view the 11 core exhibitions and five special exhibitions that the IAAM has to offer.  

The structure of the building was designed to hover above the grounds where tens of thousands of enslaved African people disembarked into the U.S. from the late 1760s to 1808, according to the IAAM website. 

Within 12 months,185,000 footsteps have echoed across the floors of the museum located in Charleston’s historic Gadsden’s Wharf.
