All Americans Should Proudly

"Celebrate"

A Long Awaited Accomplishment!

“The museum is opening  amid a three-day celebration,  including “musical

performances, dance, spoken word, oral history activities and two evening

concerts.”   It  officially  opened  to  the  public  at 1  p.m.  today  –

[September 24, 2016] and passes for opening weekend are sold out.”

 

 “It has been  in  the works for more  than a  century – as NPR's Tanya  Ballard

Brown reported, it was “first proposed in 1915 by black veterans of the Civil

War.” She walked us through the many steps between that initial proposal

and today's dedication ceremony here.”
