|The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) is designed |
to present the experiences of African Americans and how they helped shape the nation.
This new Smithsonian Institute museum is scheduled to open this fall on the National
Mall in Washington, DC
Would you like to help the museum tell the African American experience? Among other assistance, NMAAHC is asking the public to:
- Donate objects - NMAAHC is looking for your artifacts, historical documents, photographs, audio recordings, moving images, books, or visual arts related to African American history, to include in its collection.
- Volunteer - NMAAHC needs volunteers to index records of the Freedmen’s Bureau, to help online researchers. The Freedmen's Bureau was a federal agency that aided freed slaves in the South during the Reconstruction era.
