During this past year, the Amistad Research Center was incredibly fortunate to be recognized as one of six recipients of the National Medal for Museum and Library Services. This recognition was based not on a single achievement or statistic, but on Amistad’s decades-long legacy as a cultural heritage institution with a reputation for providing access to its outstanding collections, for creating thought-provoking public programming and educational outreach, and for supporting organizations and individuals seeking to highlight the histories of marginalized communities in order to spark dialogue and change.
Such an honor could not have been possible without the support of Amistad's diverse constituents, from donors to visiting researchers to students and educators. Now you can help us launch the Preserve The Legacy | Preserve Your Legacy campaign to kickstart Amistad’s success in 2023. Help us continue to preserve and tell the stories of the individuals, families and organizations who have sought to ensure that equality, freedom and social justice are not just topics of the past, but the way forward in the future.
