Here's your chance to look into the future! Click on this link to find a very special video I hope you will view.

The video connects you to an exciting two-and-a-half minute computer animation — known as a “fly-through” — that takes you through a conceptual rendering of Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture.
The video dramatically depicts what your support is helping to create. It is a vision that you can truly be proud of!

Beginning with a montage of African American history makers, the video flies over our beautiful National Mall in Washington, D.C. You’ll see the Museum itself taking virtual shape at 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW, right across from the Smithsonian's American History Museum. Then you’ll go inside for a “guided tour” of galleries, exhibitions and more, ending with a view of the building glowing with lights at night.

What makes this video so exciting is the knowledge that, thanks to you and your fellow Charter Members and Supporters, the museum building is rapidly becoming a reality. Construction is underway and our doors will open in late 2015!

You are playing a tremendous role in building the National Museum of African American History and Culture already. I offer the heartfelt gratitude to you from all of us here at the Museum.

Lonnie G. Bunch All the best,

P.S. I hope you’ll forward this message to friends and family who need to know that, finally, African American history and culture will be getting a much deserved and long overdue place of honor on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Again, thank you!
