You hear it a lot from us, but most of our work in building healthy and strong Wisconsin communities comes from choosing organizations to partner with who are similarly committed to enhancing the quality of life for Wisconsinites everywhere. Among these, America’s Black Holocaust Museum is building a healthier and stronger Milwaukee and Wisconsin by telling important stories.

Friday, June 3rd, we were grateful to sponsor the first Community Day celebration at America’s Black Holocaust Museum since the museum’s grand physical reopening in February of 2022. As a 2022 museum sponsor, it’s been exciting watching the doors reopen on this historically significant location that highlights the journey of Black Americans from early colonization and slavery through now.

Whether you’re in Milwaukee or need to travel to see the museum, spending a day taking in the impressively presented exhibits and learning the somber, yet hopeful, narratives therein is an important way to connect with your own home community and the still-marginalized people groups who live there.

The 2022 Community Day celebration was also significant for serving as the first Community Day in over 14 years since the museum transferred its exhibits to digital-only in 2012. Now, having opened its doors at 401 W. North Avenue in the historic Bronzeville neighborhood of Milwaukee, America’s Black Holocaust Museum is open to the public with many more Community Days and other events ahead. We are excited to join them for all of them.

View the photos below and be sure to plan a day to spend at this significant fixture of our city on the lake.
