The National African American Museum of History and Culture: Part 3

So much brilliance. And courage. And perseverance. And passion.

Once again, I didn't take half enough pictures for the video. There was simply too many individuals, too many astonishing, culture changing performances, performers, and artworks. And because we spent so much time in the lower levels, I felt rushed and didn't get to spend the time I wanted on the upper levels.

And that was the best piece of advice I received before visiting this museum. Do spend time at the lower levels of the museum, but be careful to save time for the upper levels as well. I didn't do as good of a job on this as I could have -- so I know that I have to visit again!

I also missed the MLK reflection fountain, and probably lots of other things too.

Nonetheless. This museum was one of the highlights of our recent trip to D.C.

This space feels like a national treasure.

The importance of telling the story of the African American experience in America, and honoring those voices that have contributed so significantly to the vibrancy of our nation is the sacred, and successful endeavor of The National African American Museum of History and Culture in Washington, D.C.
