THE AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSEUM OF BUCKS COUNTY
By Marion Freiberg
heroes but got to dress up/
reenact as those heroes.
And, last Fall, the AAMBC
partnered with the Peace
Center to bring 32 young
people to Washington, DC
to share their personal
experiences of discrimination and harassment
on the floor of the House of Representatives. Then, the museum followed up with a community
meeting about next steps to take to increase inclusion
and understanding.

Judge Waite has befriended
the emerging African American
Museum of Bucks County
(AAMBC) in a big way. At
his February 2 tribute dinner,
he let the over-200-person
crowd know that he boldly
supports its mission and
goal. Why is that? What is
this new museum?
The AAMBC is a new museum; it is mostly a mobile
museum at the moment, but certainly making its mark on
the county. Through its educational efforts, the museum
seeks to throw a spotlight onto the contributions of Bucks
County's African American "Hidden Figures," past and
present, such as Judge Waite. The museum's mission is to
act now to capture disappearing history and widen appreciation of the many enormous African American contributors
of Bucks County.

If the AAMBC's mission touches you, if you'd like to be
part of realizing its mission, please support this young,
emerging 501c (3) non-profit with a donation towards
its continuing programming as well as its goal to have a
permanent home in the county. You can donate online on
the museum website, www.infoaambc.com, or contact us
at aambcmuseum@gmail.com. 

Both Judge Waite and the AAMBC know that appreciation
grows and deepens when it is personal. As Judge Waite
said, "There's a need for interaction between the races, the
ethnic groups, the socio-economic groups. We need to get
together to know one another on a personal level which
makes for a fully functioning community."
The AAMBC could not agree more. The museum seeks to
have a personal impact through its educational programs.
For example, the museum recently held an afternoon
program for families called "Hidden Figures," where old
and young alike not only heard stories of African American
