White Privilege at the NMAAHC

On September 17, my partner Akeem Muhammad and I had the honor of attending the donor's preview of the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC).

We had a deeply profound experience at the first national museum dedicated to African-Americans. I cried tears of joy as I reflected on the museum's implications for Black youth. Black children will now have an arena where they can consume their own history, rather than having it relegated to the shortest month of the year. 

I am thankful our children will have a place where they can see that our history is American history.
