The Museum’s ability to successfully tell this story depends on the generosity of others. With the creation of the Faith Initiative, NMAAM hopes to bring together a community of faith-based organizations that are committed to collectively giving to the Museum and encouraging their members to donate as well. This is a story that must be told and one that requires financial support to properly showcase the African American imprint on the American soundtrack!

By joining this community of givers and encouraging your members to donate, it will provide NMAAM funding needed to continue our adult and youth programs and events, which already reach over 8,000 people a year. Additionally, donations allow the Museum to continue artifact collection and completing the design and overall story of the Museum.



Please consider joining the Faith Initiative to ensure we thrive far into the future and tell a story never before told! Contact LoLita Toney today at or 615-301-8724 for more information and details.
