The whole family is invited to the Smithsonian’s kickoff celebration of Black History Month. The day includes kalimba music, art activities, free performances by the Discovery Theater, self-guided tours of the National Museum of African American History and Culture’s exhibition Road to Freedom, and a panel discussion of the history of the Shaw neighborhood.
This is the first feature event in the Smithsonian Heritage Month 2009 family-day series, sponsored by Target. The theme is “Living in Many Worlds,” which explores the dynamic intersection of family, history, and cultural identity.
Participants: Anacostia Community Museum, Discovery Theater, National Museum of African American History and Culture, Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies, and Smithsonian Heritage Months Steering Committee
