520 The first national museum whose mission is to illuminate
for all people, the rich, diverse, complicated, and
important experiences and contributions of African
Americans in America is opening. And the history of NMAAHC
--the last museum to be built on the National Mall--is the
history of America. The campaign to set up a museum
honoring black citizens is nearly 100 years old; building
the museum itelf and assembling its incredibly far-
reaching collections is a modern story that involves all
kinds of people, from educators and activists, to
politicians, architects, curators, construction workers,
and ordinary Americans who donated cherished belongings to
be included in NMAAHC's thematically-organized exhibits.
Award-winning author Tonya Bolden has written a
fascinating chronicle of how all of these ideas, ambitions,
and actual objects came together in one incredible museum.
Includes behind-the-scenes photos of literally "how to
build a museum" that holds everything from an entire
segregated railroad car to a tiny West African amulet worn
to ward off slave traders.
