New museum to carry the weight of black history
President Obama and former first lady Laura Bush joined Wednesday in celebrating the start of construction for the National Museum of African American History and Culture with groundbreaking ceremonies on the National Mall.
The $500 million museum, created by an act of Congress in 2003, will have the task of chronicling more than 200 years of black life in the United States.
It was first proposed by black Civil War veterans almost 100 years ago and took five special commissions and two acts of Congress later to make it a reality. Obama, the nation’s first black president, was joined by first lady Michelle Obama and other dignitaries.
The new museum will include seven levels over more than 323,000 square feet and provide a sweeping history that confronts racial oppression and highlights the achievements of the famous and the everyday life of ordinary people. Its bronze and glass facade, known as the Corona, represents traditional African architecture.
Bring on the music, Jason Moran.
Alright now! He’s working those keys out.
Go Congressman, John Lewis!
“We must tell the whole story of African American contribution to this country.”
WE ARE AMERICA, BABY.
“Make a change with CHANGE.” Love this title. Look at our precious little children.
