The African American Museum in Philadelphia

Life-sized 3D characters greet visitors at The African American Museum in Philadelphia’s permanent exhibition, Audacious Freedom – African Americans in Philadelphia, 1776-1876. As they speak fervently about their lives, beliefs and aspirations in 18th-century Philadelphia, listeners are immersed in their world. The interactive timeline guides people through 100 years of entrepreneurship, environment, education, religion and family traditions in the African-American community.
