The National Museum of African American History and Culture
How about a moment for real Black Power!!!!! This museum is opening the door in our "Post-post-black" revisionists era.
The United States features many such museums around the country. Each having a different focus, style, budget and impact. They all are the spawn of the rise of Black Conciousness.
"Black" is the cultural context of self determination created by the descendants of Africans who were enslaved in the Americas. Slave culture, to imposed Negro culture to Black liberation. It was an evolution.
Many feel more comfortable saying "African American" but that could include a white South African immigrant or folks of Libyan ancestry. Hence many of us prefer the term, "Black" for better clarity.
