Welcome Letter

As we prepare for the museum’s fall season, it is a time of both celebration and reflection. This year has been remarkable—from the 150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and centennial of Harriet Tubman’s death to the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington—2013 has been abundant with opportunities to honor those who were at the forefront of our nation’s struggle for racial equality. With reverence we remember them all, both the famous and unsung heroes alike. However, we cannot forget that their tedious work and sacrifices were only the beginning; there is still much to be done. Our community—our village—must unite in the spirit of the Kwanzaa principle Ujima, collective work and responsibility, to move our nation forward.
