The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) is offering special programming in honor of Women’s History Month.
The museum announced the featuring of four programs that will include two special programs that explore the stories of Recy Taylor and Harriet Tubman. Recy Taylor’s story of torture and endurance was made public in January during Oprah Winfrey’s speech at the Golden Globe Awards.
The museum hopes to amplify the stories of women who stood up against discrimination with its #HiddenHerstory social media push.
“Using the #HiddenHerstory hashtag, the museum’s social media will honor women who have shaped American history through a commitment to ending discrimination,” a press release sent to EBONY states. “The social media campaign will feature the stories of local women, artists, activists and educators who persisted despite the many intersecting forms of discrimination.”
All events are free and open to the public and will take place in the museum’s Oprah Winfrey Theater.
On Mar. 8, International Women’s Day, the NMAAHC will feature two films, et the Church Say Amen! and Verdict: Not Guilty.
