Having traveled the country over 25 years combing through antique shops, flea markets, estate sales and auctions, Dr. el-Hakim has personally acquired a diverse archive of memorabilia distinctively situating itself among the most sought after exhibits of its kind in the America.
Among this unique collection are rare artifacts
representing categories including (but not limited to) slavery, politics, Jim Crow, science, religion, education, music, sports, and civil rights. Some of the highlights of the collection are documents signed by Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, Mary Mcleod Bethune, W.E.B. Dubois, Paul Robeson, Rosa Parks, Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., George Washington Carver, Lena Horne, Carter G. Woodson, Angela Davis, and many more.
Accessible and Interactive
Intentionally displayed in non-traditional museum spaces such as classrooms, conference rooms, libraries, galleries and even living rooms, the Black History 101 Mobile Museum offers audiences a fresh and creative lens to view history while developing a broader appreciation for museums in general and providing a "safe space" to have honest conversations about race and social justice.
