National Museum of African American History and Culture


June 20, 2017

On Tuesday, June 20th, as part of the “Molly Hathaway Young Women and Redmond C. S. Finney Young Men’s Leadership Programs”, B.E.S.T. Upper School students and their parents joined us for a trip to the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. We began our visit to the museum with a meet and greet with John Franklin, who serves as the cultural historian and Senior Manager of the Office of External Affairs at the Museum. He gave the students a history of the museum, an overview of the exhibits and a career tutorial – sharing with the students the rich diversity of jobs required to make the museum run successfully – from security officers to curators to architects. We had a wonderful day touring the museum and look forward to another visit next summer!
