    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.

    The Museum’s nearly 40,000 objects help all Americans see how their stories, their histories, and their cultures are shaped by A People’s Journey and A Nation’s Story.

    From Harriet Tubman to Black Lives Matter, journey with us as we celebrate American history through the African American lens. #APeoplesJourney #ANationsStory

    Music: "$ (Remix)" D.R.A.M.

    Our Visitor Voices campaign highlights the Museum’s community of visitors and reflects their stories.

Visitors are able to record their experience in our Reflections Booths located in our history galleries, or are invited to share via a social media staffer.

    So to thank our incredible community of visitors, we are celebrating our first anniversary month with a new series called #VisitorVoices.

    30 days. 30 voices. 30 stories. So make sure to subscribe and tune in daily, as our visitors voice and share their own stories and reflections on #APeoplesJourney. A Nation's Story.
