DC Host Committee for the Opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture
The African American Civil War Museum has formed a city-wide host committee to develop a comprehensive series of activities specifically designed to expose the projected 150,000 visitors to the many contributions made by African-Americans in Washington, D.C. The activities will begin September 18, 2016, and continue through September 26, 2016. The activities will include plays and exciting concerts as well as events hosted by the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library and the African American Civil War Museum. Further, on the day of the opening, there will be hourly shuttles from the African American Civil War Museum to a site within proximity to the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC). All activities will be free and open to the public.
The African American Civil War Museum is a 501(c) (3) organization and is supported largely by donations. Therefore, we are reaching out to members of the business community to request your support to underwrite these efforts.
