It was more than a century in the making, but well worth the wait. With thousands of artifacts detailing hundreds of years of African-American history, interactive exhibits, and stories told by people from the past and the present to those who hold our future, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture is expected to bring millions to see what it holds.
Johnson Publishing Company chair Linda Johnson Rice, who also serves in a leadership capacity with the museum spoke with us about the amazing accomplishment in building the space, what visitors can expect to see and what makes it a crucial piece of the American story.
