The Black History 101 Mobile Museum (BH101MM) is an innovative traveling table top exhibit depicting Black memorabilia spanning slavery to Hip Hop.  The mobile museum is a cost effective approach to present historical artifacts to schools systems, communities, colleges and universities throughout the nation.

In 2011, Khalid el-Hakim, the museum's founder and curator, celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the BH101MM.

On Tuesday, February 11, 2014 – as part of the Black History Celebration – CMASS, through the Malcolm X Cultural Center and  in collaboration with other organizations on campus, has arranged to have  the Black History 101 Mobile Museum at the Campus Center Auditorium for public viewing.  The exhibit will be followed with a lecture by Prof. Griff of Public Enemy at the Campus Center Auditorium.  The Exhibit will run from 7:00am-6:00pm, and the lecture will be held from 7:00-9:30pm., same venue.
