Let’s Talk About: The African American Museum

20171230_112643

As I mentioned in my last post, I was able to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture in DC.  It was seriously one of the best museums I’ve ever been to – and not just because I’m black/AA.

There was so much that I didn’t even know.  I could have spent all day in that place.  As a black person, it was amazing to see the opposition that my people have faced and have risen above.  In my opinion, everything we touch is gold.  Our influences are amazing and powerful and wonderful.  I could go on and on, but I figured I’d share pictures of my time there.  And honestly speaking, if you ever get the chance to go, make sure your phone/camera is fully charged – you’ll want to capture as much as possible!

Before we get onto the pictures, word of advice: if you are planning to go there and want to get tickets online, you’ll have to 1 of 2 things: 1) plan months in advanced to guarantee that you’ll get in OR 2) whenever you go to DC, get up before 6:30 am to try to get tickets.  I did the latter and was able to get tickets.  If you do the 6:30 am bit, do it fast because those suckers sell out quickly! Anywho, enough babbling, onto the pictures!
