Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture

This week's featured organization is the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The NMAAHC is the Smithsonian's newest museum. Opened on the National Mall in 2016, it encompasses a powerful collection devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture.

Although the museum is so popular that free passes are handed out months in advance, it has not been without its dark moments:

While federal funds and grants paid for the part of the building construction and ongoing educational programs, the museum also relies on private donors and support from the public.
