National Museum of African American History and Culture commemorates Black women on social media during Women's History Month
Women’s History Month is in full swing and to commemorate it, the National Museum of African American History and Culture will be conducting a series of panel discussions and film screenings in the museum’s Oprah Winfrey Theater. The events will spotlight the accomplishments of black women in the arts, business, leadership and activism. The on-site activities will complement a month long #HiddenHerStory social media campaign focused on unsung women in American history.
According to a press release, the Women’s History Month campaign will spotlight the work of 15 African American women who, “though not widely known, made a significant impact on history. Among them are organizers Hallie Quinn Brown and Pauli Murray, artists Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller and Harriet Powers, entrepreneurs Ann Lowe and Annie Turnbo Malone and musicians Big Mama Thornton and Gladys Bentley.”
Black women are such important part of American history and it’ll be unforgivable if no one would honor them. Black women did history and still continue to do so.
