Black History

Embassy Activities to Compliment Museum Dedication

African-American historians point out that Black history started on the African continent and then spread throughout the new world. The museum acknowledges this in several of its exhibits. And it should not be surprising then that many of the city’s embassies representing the African diaspora will hold events welcoming the NMAAHC.
