A SINCERE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO JOINED US.
Below is the letter from the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture thanking us.
With only days remaining before the opening of the long awaited Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, we want to thank you for joining over 800 Co-Celebration partners, in 22 countries around the globe, in commemorating this watershed moment in the African Diasporic journey. Thank you for registering your event as an official co-celebrant of the Lift Every Voice campaign!”
“The National Museum of African American History and Culture is the 19th museum of the Smithsonian Institution and is located at the foot of the Washington Monument on the National Mall in Washington, DC. The museum provides for the collection, study, and establishment of programs and exhibitions related to African American life, history, art, and culture. It is a place where people can learn about the richness and diversity of the African American experience; it is a place of meaning, memory, reflection, laughter, and hope.”
“I am convinced that the inspiring and interactive exhibitions at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture will add a healing energy to the United States of American’s History.
I sincerely wish that those who visit the Corona/Crown shaped museum, will be touched by its aura and may a change of heart and self-esteem of the USA and its people, extend as far reaching as our Sun’s corona.”
I was honored to be part of the Lift Every Voice global initiative to showcase the breadth of African American history and culture across the nation and around the world.
Our event/journey began with a tour of an open-air Museum in southern Egypt, Mini Egypt Park because this is where there is also a replica of the Luxor obelisk . The Washington Monument is also a modern day replica of an obelisk, and it will now share the National Mall with the new National Museum of African American History and Culture. We will conclude our journey in Newburgh, New York at the artist studio of Charles R. Dudley. The “Journey of Faith” installation is a spiritual expression of the artist’s faith from his Southern Baptist upbringing, to a practicing Buddhist.
