Bill Cosby Urges Americans to Donate $8 to the US National Slavery Museum



Bill Cosby has helped kick off a campaign to build a national slavery museum amid the battlefields of the Civil War.

Bill Cosby takes part Friday Sept 22nd in a campaign kicked off to build a national slavery museum amid the battlefields of the Civil War. Besides giving his own $1 million to the project, the actor also urges all Americans to donate $8.00 to the museum, to be called the United States National Slavery Museum (USNSM).

On the donation, Cosby said "The incentive is that they would join in with the rest of the United States of America in saying yes, as an American, I gave $8 to help build something that tells the story". Joining Richmond, Virginia, Mayor Douglas Wilder to launch the campaign, Cosby moreover described the museum as "a jewel that's missing in a crown."

Located in Fredericksburg, the Museum will offer 100,000+/- square feet of permanent and temporary exhibit space, including a full-scale replica of a slave ship. Its exhibits will present the most cutting-edge high-tech audiovisual media, including a 450-seat theater as well as three other dynamic theaters, taking visitors on a journey through time.
