Update on African American History and Culture Museum

From the Voice of America:

“February is Black History Month in the United States, when Americans are encouraged to learn about and appreciate the many contributions African Americans have made to American society. Those efforts got a boost this week (January 30) when the Smithsonian Institution announced its plan to build a National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall, where, in about 10 years, it will join the of the capital city’s famed national museums monuments.”

Looks like the museum will be located right next to the Museum of American History. I’ve already contributed to the funding of this worthy endeavor and I encourage you to do the same.
