African-American history Museums we Visited
Josiah Henson Museum
The Charles H. Wright museum
Underground Railroad Museum
The underground railroad to me was a experience of a life time this museum taught me the harsh obstacles my ancestors went through so they can have there freedom. this museum also showed me all the people that was against slavery and wanted to abolish it. -Diamond
I believe that the Josiah Henson Museum was a very alive place to visit. Everything from the past came to life when I went there we saw cabin in the cabin there was a room the room represented what the rooms look like in the past.
This musuem is my favorite we visited the still we rise exhibit and i loved it. i love how it showed us the beginning of our race and how we were so wealthy then it showed us how we got capture all the way to the emancipation proclamation to the election of our 44Th president. - diamond
That experience was so alive and impactful. I learned that Africa used to be called Ethiopia and my ancestors including my mother and father are from Ethiopia. I learned about slavery and this museum showed what the african race was like back then and now i realize that our ancestors worked so hard for our freedom but we take our freedom for granted.
The underground Railroad museum was a great learning experience that taught me the real living environment of an enslaved African it made me feel upset that the living environment of those people were harsh and they didn't deserve that equality. -Rowda
The Josiah Henson museum represent the life of Josiah Henson, Josiah Henson was born a slave in Maryland Josiah was known to be a uncle tom because he was an overseer and the other slaves thought of him as a trader. Josiah trusted his slave master but one day he decided to run. he got his freedom and tjen started helping other people get there freedom.
The Motown or Hitsville USA museum was a great experience there we saw many photographs of back in the day stars. hitsville is a music legacy alot of people sang there such as the Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, temptations, plus many many more.
I thought the trip a excellent learning experience the only thing i would change is the long bus ride home and there also the fact that we had to get up early. -Diamond
I thought the trip was a very magnificent learning opportunity. I really learned allot visually and mentally. One thing that changed that i will do is that I will never go to a "picnic" because of the previous meaning. - Rowda
