MILWAUKEEBrewers Community Foundation (BCF), the charitable arm of the Milwaukee Brewers, in partnership with America’s Black Holocaust Museum (ABHM) announced today that in honor of founder Dr. James Cameron, Brewers Community Foundation will provide free admission to the museum on Founder’s Day, Sunday, Feb. 25.

As part of the ongoing partnership and support, BCF will also assist with ABHM’s 2024 membership drive. The support will provide new opportunities for community members to experience the museum and learn more about the rich cultural heritage and adversities that are an integral part of our country’s history.

America’s Black Holocaust Museum was founded in Milwaukee by Dr. James Cameron in 1988, a man who dedicated his life to promoting civil rights, racial unity and equality. Over the past three decades the museum has seen a closure, reopening, and today, continued growth in a new space that debuted in 2022.

“We are honored to help America’s Black Holocaust Museum celebrate its founding during Black History Month,” said BCF Executive Director Cecelia Gore. “The opportunity to provide complimentary admission on Founder’s Day and further support their membership drive will help community members experience the museum and learn more about Black Heritage here in Milwaukee, and across the country.”
