The exhibition “A Century in the Making: Building the National Museum of African American History and Culture,” co-curated by Dr. Joanne Hyppolite, recounts the lobbying and advocacy efforts – dating back to 1915 – which made the building of this museum possible.

Topics explored in this exhibition presentation include: the original source of inspiration for the museum, the legislative efforts that led to the museum’s establishment, how the museum built its collection, and an architectural overview of the museum building.

An inside view of the 12 inaugural exhibitions will also be presented.
