Goes Round and Round
The National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC, pays tribute to African Americans throughout history and their contributions to society. Given the past year’s events surrounding racial justice in America, the widespread need for education on African American history is more crucial than ever. The museum’s current exhibits include Kobe Bryant’s Los Angeles Lakers jersey and a portrait of Breonna Taylor by renowned artist Amy Sherald. It is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture, making it a distinctive experience for those visiting the nation’s capital. The mesmerizing structure opened to the public on September 24, 2016, as the nineteenth and newest branch of the Smithsonian Institution.
