Ms. Katie Williams, 81, of #DC, reflects on the history of #AfricanAmericans and the building of the new #Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture (#NMAAHC) in #WashingtonDC. “African Americans have been left out of the history books for years and years, and they’re still being left out…We have much talent and intelligence and all those things, and a lot of people try to pretend that we’re just a bunch of barbarians.” Of the new African American history museum, she said, “It took 100 years to do it, but it finally got done.” #forwp #NationalMuseumofAfricanAmericanHistoryandCulture #aPeoplesJourney
