The National Museum of African American History has opened today.
President Obama spoke at the ceremony, NPR reports:
This museum, Obama says, provides “context for the debates of our time.” He says it’s also a “place to understand how protest and love of country don’t merely coexist but inform each other”: “How men can proudly win the Gold for their country but still insist on raising a black-gloved fist. How we can wear an ‘I can’t breathe’ t-shirt but still grieve for fallen police officers. Here’s the American where the razor-sharp uniform of the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, belongs alongside the cape of the godfather of soul.”
Indeed a presidency some optimistically thought to welcome a ‘post-racial America,’ has been the catalyst for much of the opposite to surface.
