The Great Blacks In Wax Museum: A Highly Unique Experience

Baltimore, Maryland -The Great Blacks In Wax Museum is among the United States' most dynamic cultural and educational institutions. Because it is a wax museum committed solely to the study and preservation of African-American history, it is also among the most unique. Primarily, the presentation of life-size, life-like wax figures highlighting historical and contemporary personalities of African ancestry defines its uniqueness.

Each was figure, clad in its appropriate historical attire, is part of a scenic display depicting the struggles, achievements, and contributions of African people worldwide. Each display is presented chronologically, highlighting ancient Africa, the Middle Passage, the Antebellum and Postbellum periods, Reconstruction, the Harlem Renaissance, the Civil Rights era, and the present. The personalities from each period are those whose lives exemplify the African-American traditions of help, uplift, and protest. They are those of humble beginnings who have risen through great sacrifice and against tremendous odds to achieve distinguished recognition or make outstanding contributions to American and world civilization. They are also those who pioneered or excelled in particular fields of endeavor. But above all, they are those whose talents and genius reflect the talent and genius of the African-American masses.

The museum not only views African-Americans from the past, but also sees history as an involvement of the past, present, and future.
