A Place for All People (in the Beach Gallery)Sep 20, 2016 – Jan 18, 2017
The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) and the National Museum of African American History and Culture present A Place for All People: Introducing the National Museum of African American History and Culture, a set of unique and highly informative posters designed to engage and inspire visitors and students and to help celebrate the historic opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
The African American story is one characterized by pain and glory, power and civility, enslavement and freedom. It is a multi-disciplinary tribute to the best ideals of the American philosophy. A Place for All People evokes the power of oration and freedom stories, the brilliance of artistic achievement, and the soaring heights of cultural expression. In addition to profiling the long struggle to create the museum, the building’s architectural design and its prominent location on the National Mall, the poster exhibit is a survey of the African American community’s deep and lasting contributions to the American story.
