These times, they are a-changing


August 18, 2017

Did you know that a proposal for a National Negro Memorial Museum was approved by Congress in 1929 but never built?

On April 2, 2003, Federal legislation passed a commission to build a museum honoring African-Americans. The National Museum of African-American History and Culture opened in September 2016.

See the exhibit at The Holocaust Center on display now through Sept. 8. Museum hours are Monday—Thursday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.; and Sunday from 1 p.m.-4 p.m.
