Get Involved

Excitement continues to grow around the development of the Smithsonian’s new National Museum of African American History and Culture. The museum will be far more than a collection of objects.

As a place of meaning, of memory, of reflection, of laughter, and of hope, the Museum is a watershed in the national discussion about race and the vital role African Americans have played in the American story a museum that will make all Americans proud.
