Black Lives Matter: The Black Lives Matter Movement in the National Museum of African American History and Culture

Rod Clare

Abstract

It has been over forty years since the mostly successful conclusion of the

Civil Rights movement in the United States. While some may have thought

the election of an African-American president in 2008 heralded a “postracial”

America, continued violence and oppression has brought about a rebirth of

activism, embodied by the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. Now that

nascent movement is preparing to be part of the National Museum of African

American History and Culture (NMAAHC). Due to open in fall 2016, the

NMAAHC will be located at 1400 Constitution Avenue NW, in Washington

DC.
