Viewing Rosa Parks' dress or Louis Armstrong's trumpet can ignite a moment that doesn't just teach us about history, but about ourselves.
The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC), the newest Smithsonian museum opening in 2016, will use the history of African Americans as a lens into what it means to be an American.
African American history IS America’s history! The stories, artifacts and treasures to be housed at the NMAAHC will remind us of where we've been, the challenges we still face and point us toward what we can become.
If you value the richness and diversity of the African American experience and want to share how it has helped shape this nation, please help move the NMAAHC's vision of unity and education forward. Pledge to support the preservation and celebration of African American history and culture through the NMAAHC.
