In service of its mission to foster greater appreciation of the Black experience through art, culture, and historical witness, African American Museum in Philadelphia will expand its digital strategies to make its live programming and exhibitions, as well as newly created content, more fully available online. Two new staff positions will support these efforts, which aim to meet and exceed the museum’s pre-pandemic audience reach and generate new opportunities for BIPOC scholars and artists.

The total grant amount represents project funding plus an additional 20% in unrestricted general operating support.
