Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History and Culture

On Friday, President Obama opened the new African American Museum in Washington, DC., part of the Smithsonian. The major British architect with African heritage who planned the building, sought to bring people together in the building and engage them in ongoing discussions on racial relations. The museum seeks to fill a hole in history. The building combines elements from Africa and the Americas into its design.  See video and read more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-37461048  Here's the museum's website https://nmaahc.si.edu/
