National Museum of African American History and Culture

National Museum of African American History and Culture Stacked raisin brown in a sea of white stone. Far from the dome, defiant against Rome. Windows covered toward deceit. But open toward the Emancipators feet. Shimmering gold in the setting sun. Much too small to hold, the valiant tale told. A people risen up, fist held high. Praising God with, a bold new cry.
