NMAAHC Groundbreaking

National Museum of African American History and Culture

On February 22, 2012, the Smithsonian Institution broke ground for the construction of the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC).  This historic event marks another milestone whereby the symbolic space of the National Mall more closely reflects the history, art and culture of the American people.  Indeed, many of our stories are defined by the African American experience.  The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program celebrates NMAAHC for enriching our art, history and culture, and for reminding us of what is possible.

Thank you.

    The National Museum of African American History and Culture will be a fantastic addition to the National Mall, especially to frequent overseas visitors like myself who are keen to gain an understanding of the history and culture of the nation.
