Museum – National African-American History Museum, Washington, District of Columbia

In a unique step, a physical museum to open in 2015 in Washington, DC, has gotten its start as a virtual museum at: http://nmaahc.si.edu/. The New York Times published a particularly scathing review of the website, claiming “Given the enormity of the interpretive project ahead, and its national importance, why was it prematurely undercut with something as thin and uninspiring as this site?” (Let Your Motto Be Resistance, October 15, 2007). Still there is hope that both the website and museum will help to encourage a deep exploration of the black American experience.
