The National Museum of African American History and Culture tells stories that shape all our lives

The Baltimore area is blessed with a multitude of African-American history museums and heritage sites. We've got Great Blacks in Wax, the Lewis Museum, Benjamin Banneker Historical Park, the Eubie Blake Cultural Center, and the Frederick Douglass-Isaac Meyers Maritime Park, just to name a few. This weekend shifted our attention south, though, to the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC), located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The museum is incredible, and a reminder that even with this new behemoth a quick MARC ride from home, it is as essential as ever to support our local black heritage sites.

A trip inside was the hottest ticket...
