Black History Museum Celebrates Second Anniversary

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture kicks off its third year of operation with programming that pioneers the way museums engage and educate the public.

The museum, which has welcomed nearly 4.5 million visitors since its opening in 2016, begins its third year entering new territory with the Black Architects and Planners Symposium from Sept. 27–29, and the first-ever Smithsonian African American Film Festival from Oct. 24–27. With these initiatives, the museum shows how African Americans have shaped American life through film, food, architecture, community planning and urban design.

“I am excited that the museum will continue to engage and educate the millions who have already visited,” said Lonnie Bunch III, museum founding director. “We will continue to wrestle with issues that will help Americans understand the centrality of race in America and become a site of memory meaning and change.”
