Closed petition Create a National Museum of Black History and Culture

We do not have a world-class national museum dedicated to black history.

The British Museum was created by The British Museum Act 1753. The NMAAHC was established by an Act of Congress 2003.

To create a comparable museum we need an Act of Parliament to establish a new UK Black History Museum.

More details

It will have 3 aims:


Educate young & old as they see the significant contribution of black people to our society through culture, slavery, war and Windrush.

Raise up heroes in black history & inspire the next generation of black STEM pioneers.

Starting with the taught curriculum, campaign for lasting change & involve everyone in the fight against racism.

This museum will show everyone that the lives & experiences of black people in the UK matter.
