The International African American Museum has received a grant of $500,000 from the Ford Foundation that will support the museum’s inaugural year of operation, including exhibition installations and early programming, genealogy workshops and Gullah storytelling programs.
“This is our momentum year. As we head down the finish line of artifact and exhibition installation, we are also launching several programs and beginning to connect with educators across the country while we design our K-12 curriculum,” said Tonya Matthews, museum president and CEO. “We are only able to do this with the vision and support of organizations like the Ford Foundation. We are incredibly grateful for their continuing support.”
