The grand opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture was a three-day celebration packed with musical performances, dance, spoken word, oral history activities and two evening concerts.
Tomorrow, history will be made as the National Museum of African-American History and Culture opens its doors to the public. When you attend, use the hashtag #apeoplesjourney and share it on social media.
For the first time ever, the biggest moments in our history have been collected and put on display for the entire world to see. The Smithsonian’s newest museum took over 10 years to build and holds over 70,000 square feet on the National Mall. Placed directly facing the National Monument, the building stands out as the only brown building on the grounds.
