International African American Museum (IAAM) Celebrates First Anniversary 

The International African American Museum (IAAM) will celebrate its first anniversary with numerous special programs designed to promote the museum’s accomplishments and encourage residents across Charleston, the Lowcountry, and the state of South Carolina to embrace the iconic entity as a local treasure that is becoming a national icon.


“This milestone is a testament to the power of unity and the importance of telling our stories authentically,” said Tonya Matthews, Ph.D., inaugural president and CEO of the museum, which tells the stories of African Americans and teaches visitors to find and tell their own stories.


Matthews added, “Through our exhibits and education programs, we will continue to build a world where our history is honored, with humanity as our common bond.”



After an opening that USA Today called one of the “Ten Best New Museums to Visit” and spending a year building membership and programming, IAAM will now focus its attention on the local community.


Beginning this summer, the museum will conduct extensive outreach to Charleston, Lowcountry and South Carolina residents to encourage them to visit the historic site, discover their stories, and learn about the achievements and contributions of Black Charlestonians and South Carolinians who were instrumental to America’s success.
