“Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture is truly groundbreaking!
The first national museum whose mission is to illuminate for all people the rich diverse complicated and important experiences and contributions of African Americans in America is opening.
And the history of NMAAHC–the last museum to be built on the National Mall–is the history of America. The campaign to set up a museum honoring black citizens is nearly 100 years old; building the museum itelf and assembling its incredibly far-reaching collections is a modern story that involves all kinds of people from educators and activists to politicians architects curators construction workers and ordinary Americans who donated cherished belongings to be included in NMAAHC’s thematically-organized exhibits.” – publisher
