The Legacy Museum:   From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration is situated on a site in Montgomery where enslaved people were once warehoused.  A block from one of the most prominent slave auction spaces in America, the Legacy Museum is steps away from an Alabama dock and rail station where tens of thousands of black people were trafficked during the 19th century.

The National Memorial for Peace and Justice
, which opened to the public on April 26, 2018, is the nation's first memorial dedicated to the legacy of enslaved black people, people terrorized by lynching, African Americans humiliated by racial segregation and Jim Crow, and people of color burdened with contemporary presumptions of guilt and police violence. 

Why Build a Lynching Memorial?

In the PAOCC, we seek to use the indisputable historical milestone of the African American Quad Centennial as a rallying point to marshal the energy and focus of African-descended people across the Diaspora to intelligently confront the unique challenges facing us today and to usher in a new era of consciousness and activism.  Let us tell the indespenible role we play in the building of this country while fighting for our own sense of humanity and dignity.   Let us take time to SEE the journey, FEEL the journey all while we continue the journey celebrating the African-American traditon of Resistance and Resilience.
