It is often said that a tree without roots, does not grow and so is the same for a people who do not
know – correction – do not accept and understand their history… and in turn, themselves.
Therefore when it was first announced that there would a Smithsonian Museum dedicated to African American history and culture I was beyond excited. I was even more ecstatic when then President Obama finally declared the museum open this past September. Hence it should come as no surprise that the hubby and I made our way back to the Capitol to partake in this piece of history.
