Collection Spotlight

Building on the Dream Exhibit

The AAMBC exhibit Building on the Dream: From Africa to Bucks County pays tribute to the lives, culture, accomplishments, and contributions of African Americans in Bucks County from their origins in Africa through the 21st century. The exhibit features a timeline of events in African American history in Pennsylvania, including a memorial list of African Americans who were registered as slaves in Bucks County in the 18th and 19th centuries as well as the history of the Underground Railroad in Bucks County and the role of Bucks County AME churches in helping African Americans transition from slavery to freedom. This exhibit, which also features notable 20th century African Americans in Bucks County, is made possible by the generous support of Visit Bucks County. The exhibit is on display until September 7, 2020. Admission to the Exhibit Gallery is complimentary.

Bucks County Visitor Center is located at 3207 Street Road, Bensalem, PA.
*All visitors must wear a mask and practice social distancing.

Featured Event

Juneteenth Virtual Event

Join AAMBC and our friends from the Pennsbury Manor to celebrate Juneteenth! This year, the annual celebration of freedom comes as the country grapples with its longstanding tradition of systemic racism, as well as the fate of its Confederate monuments, flags, and symbols amid nationwide protests against police brutality and racism following the death of George Floyd.
