The Black history museum has reached a huge milestone in the few months it has been open hitting its 1 million visitors mark last week.
The National Museum of African American History and Culture, which many call just the Black History Museum, announced the milestone Monday, noting just a little more than four months have passed since Sept. 24, its opening date.
“The opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture was a 13-year journey to foster a broader understanding of the black experience in a national and international context,” Lonnie Bunch, the museum’s founding director, said. “It has truly become a place of healing, reconciliation and celebration where people can embrace not only African-American history and culture but how that layered history has shaped America’s identity.”
The reaction of the Internet users shows that 1 million is just the first step for the Black History Museum as there are still lots of people eager to visit it.
Black history is an integral part of American history and it is very important to shed light on lots of facts which have been denied or forgotten. The National Museum of African American History and Culture gives a unique opportunity to do so in one visit. Please, share this information to give the place as many visitors as possible.
