NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY & CULTURE WASHINGTON, DC RESEARCH The museum is part of the Smithsonian Institute which is a worldrenowned and authoritative source of historical and scientific information. 116 OVERCOME The museum started out with no money, no artifacts, no building and a lot of controversy. 117 APPRECIATE The museum is deliberate in soliciting and publishing the perspectives of diverse people, places and stories of the Black experience in the United States over the past few centuries. 118 REVITALIZE The museum now has nearly 37,000 objects in its collection. With funding and a prominent building on the National Mall, it is solidly positioned to preserve and share these relics in a unique way for many years to come. 119 THE TIGER & THE TORCH Page | 76

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 THE TIGER & THE TORCH Page | 77
