The museum will showcase African-American accomplishments and events throughout history starting with the slave trade to present day inventors and innovators. Although they will not exhibit everything owing to space limitations but they did a varied assortment of historical achievements by black Americans.
“We plan to actually expand on it,” region co-owner Antoinnette Keng told Hypergrid Business. “This is not a temporary exhibit. Plus, we know our history began before the slave trade and African Americans continue to make history every day.”
The highlights exhibited include abolitionism and the underground railroad, the Harlem Renaissance, Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the first African-American woman in space.
President Obama will also be featured at the entrance to the museum.
