Lest We Forget Museum of Slavery is pleased to announce a partnership with Mt. Airy Learning Tree – MALT as part of their new Fall 2021 lineup of amazing courses. We will be one of the 277 courses offered during their in-person October-December classes. We cover a period of American history that is often overlooked, skewed and in some cases hidden. Lest We Forget Museum of Slavery is the only museum of-its-kind in the Philadelphia area that provides a factual review of slavery from capture to emancipation, and beyond, which covers today’s social justice issues. Our comprehensive 90-minute guided tour provides an opportunity to view and in a limited capacity touch artifacts from the transatlantic slave trade.
