The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture is pleased to present a series of programs examining American history through an African American lens. Our programs will highlight historic or current events, themes, collections, or individuals explored in exhibitions on view in the NMAAHC Gallery at the National Museum of American History or any of a series of NMAAHC traveling exhibitions. We invite you to check our calendar often as new programs are added frequently. We hope you’ll join us at our exciting series of screenings, discussions, workshops and performances.
