Amherstburg Freedom Museum



Annually, a wide array of Black History Month events take place throughout our region, and even with the current restrictions, this year will be no different. And while we cannot celebrate in person, there are over 20 Black History Month events and activities planned for Windsor and Essex County alone!

Join us virtually as we kick-off Black History Month jointly with the Essex County Black Historical Research Society, the Windsor West Indian Association, and Black Women of Forward Action on Friday January 28th at 7pm

The Amherstburg Freedom Museum is proud of the positive preservation and promotion of the “Black Thread in the Canadian Tapestry” that has truly educated and heightened awareness of the contributions and accomplishments of African Canadians. We feel the integrity of Black Culture has been uplifted over the last four decades by the numerous heritage exhibits, stories, special events and publications covered by media, partnerships, research, and resource materials which have been compiled, catalogued and archived at our facility.
