The National Museum of African American History and Culture: The Vision
Bunch, Lonnie G., III
Journal of Museum Education, v42 n1 p8-12 2017
One challenge many museums cite is unintentional exclusion. There is too much power and respect that museums hold to be exclusive--intentionally or unintentionally. From the outset, the National Museum of African American History and Culture has been a place for everyone. Inclusion is built in its mission and vision. This article discusses how this became central to the museum, challenges that were faced in accomplishing this, and how it is put into practice through education.
