This exhibition at the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) in Washington, DC, tells a 400-year-old story of African-American history and culture. Taking visitors on a journey through twelve galleries, it aims to explore what it means to be an American and to share how American values like resilience, optimism and spirituality are reflected in this history and culture. Throughout the exhibitions, stories of individual people reveal both the lived experience of African Americans and our collective humanity.
