Founded by Drs. Elmer and Joanne Martin in 1983, this African American-focused wax museum purports to be the first of its kind in the United States. Black historical figures can be seen immortalized in wax, ranging from shackled slaves to the first African American president, Barack Obama. According to its website, the museum has four objectives, including β€œto stimulate an interest in African American history by revealing the little-known, often-neglected facts of history.” To learn more, visit the museum at www.greatblacksinwax.org.
