Happy Thanksgiving … Edison R. Wato, Jr. National Museum of African American History and Culture.


NMAAHC -- National Museum of African American History and Culture -- Happy Thanksgiving

As Thanksgiving approaches , we are thankful for all that you have done to help build the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Thanks to the help of friends like you, we broke ground in February 2012, and construction is well underway.
In fact, just this past weekend, we installed two signature objects, a Southern Pacific railway car and a 1930s-era guard tower from the Louisiana State Penitentiary, as part of the museum’s inaugural exhibition on segregation.
We are on track to open our doors in late 2015 thanks to your commitment to supporting and sharing African American history and culture with generations to come. From all of us here, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving.
Sincerely, Edison Wato signature Edison R. Wato, Jr. Membership Program Manager
