Donor Salute

 

The Museum of African American History is proud to salute extraordinary trailblazers whose remarkable accomplishments uphold the legacy of those 18th and 19th century black patriots  whose stalwart commitment to freedom and justice helped build our American democracy.

The Silver Cup was presented to William Lloyd Garrison by black community leaders for his unwavering commitment to education and the antislavery cause. Today a replica is presented to our Living Legends.
