- Pain. Persistence. Pride.
Have you been to the National Museum for African American History & Culture? I visited in 2017 and could have spent the ENTIRE day there.
#1: I love museums.
#2: I love my Blackness.
Needless to say, I was home.
The journals from the Middle Passage. Truths being self-evident but not equal. Emmett Till’s casket. The inauguration of Barack Obama. Harriet. Oprah.
Add this to your list to visit at least twice! It was definitely an experience and one that I can’t wait to consume again. In the meantime, visit their website and explore this monumental testament to the significant contributions of African Americans in these United States.
