Afriterra is pleased to be a contributor to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. We have provided digital images of some of our maps for use in the museum’s exhibitions, scheduled to open in Washington, D.C. in 2016. We’re excited about this opportunity to be part of such an important institution and the potential for further involvement and collaboration.
The museum’s own description of its purpose shows how closely it aligns with Afriterra’s:
The National Museum of African American History and Culture will be a place where all Americans can learn about the richness and diversity of the African American experience, what it means to their lives and how it helped us shape this nation. A place that transcends the boundaries of race and culture that divide us, and becomes a lens into a story that unites us all.
Scheduled to open in 2016, the museum is under construction on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on a five-acre tract adjacent to the Washington Monument. Until then, we invite you to visit our gallery located on the second floor of the National Museum of American History.
Look for more info about our contributions once the museum opens its doors later this year.
