Charleston, S.C. — The International African American Museum (IAAM) has set Tuesday, June 27, 2023, as the date that the long-awaited museum will open to the public.
The opening festivities will feature a number of community events in the days leading up to the launch, including an opening ceremony on June 24.
“We’re excited to open IAAM’s doors and showcase the incredible breadth of African American history,” said Dr. Tonya Matthews, president and CEO of the International African American Museum. “IAAM strives not only to provide a space for all visitors to celebrate and connect to this history, to these stories, and to this art, but also to find meaning within their own stories. The African American journey is far longer than the 20 years it took to build this museum and we are humbly proud to step up and play our part in this story. It is time.”
