Founding Director, National Museum of African American History and Culture | Smithsonian Institution
The Challenge of Building a National Museum

Lonnie Bunch will explore the history and struggle to create the National Museum of African American History and Culture, focusing on a variety of challenges —including building on the National Mall, conceptual frameworks, public expectations, and the contextual terrain of race. He will reveal the strategies used to successfully navigate these challenges, and will also briefly survey the difficulties of chronicling race in American museums.
