NMAAHC IN THEIR OWN WORDS “The National Museum of African American History and Culture is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture. It was established by Act of Congress [sic] in 2003, following decades of efforts to promote and highlight the contributions of African Americans. To date, the Museum has collected more than 36,000 artifacts and nearly 100,000 individuals have become charter members. The Museum opened to the public on September 24, 2016, as the 19th and newest museum of the Smithsonian Institution. There are four pillars upon which the NMAAHC stands: • It provides an opportunity for those who are interested in African American culture to explore and revel in this history through interactive exhibitions • It helps all Americans see how their stories, their histories, and their cultures are shaped and informed by global influences • It explores what it means to be an American and share how American values like resiliency, optimism, and spirituality are reflected in African American history and culture • It serves as a place of collaboration that reaches beyond Washington, D.C. to engage new audiences and to work with the myriad of museums and educational institutions that have explored and preserved this important history well before this museum was created.” 120 All Images & the Lonnie Bunch Quote are Screenshots from http://nmaahc.si.edu/ THE TIGER & THE TORCH Page | 77

PART III AT THE INTERSECTION OF OUR PAST EXPERIENCES AND OUR PRESENT LIVES, WE ALWAYS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO MOVE FORWARD AND CREATE SOMETHING MEANINGFUL FOR THE FUTURE. ALTHOUGH NOT ALL MOVEMENT IS PROGRESS, IT AT LEAST INDICATES SOMETHING IS GOING ON. BOTH LIFE AND HISTORY HAPPEN. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO SHARING OUR EXPERIENCES ACCURATELY, AUTHENTICALLY, AND HOLISTICALLY, THAT DOESN’T JUST HAPPEN; IT MUST BE DONE INTENTIONALLY. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT OUR HISTORY IS PART OF WHO WE ARE AS A NATION. IT’S OUR CHOICE HOW WE INCORPORATE IT INTO OUR DAILY LIVES. THE TIGER & THE TORCH Page | 78
