About Us

Not Your Momma's History consults with and aids museums, historical sites, historical societies, private businesses, etc. in developing specialized programming about slavery and the African experience within 18th and 19th century America.  NYMH also trains staff from all backgrounds on how to talk about slavery with diverse audiences.

Cheyney McKnight is the founder and owner of Not Your Momma’s History. She acts as an interpreter advocate for interpreters of color at historical sites up and down the east Coast, providing them with much needed on call support.  She uses her clothing and primary sources to make connections between past and present events through performance art pieces.
