A Journey Through History: The Belfield Community's Visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture

As February unfolds, we are reminded of the rich tapestry of African American history that has shaped our nation. To honor Black History Month, the Belfield Advisory Council orchestrated a community visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC. Sponsored by Highmark Healthcare, the trip was not only a celebration of culture but an educational expedition, exploring the resilience, creativity, and profound contributions of the African American community.

The Museum Experience:

Upon arriving at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, our community was greeted by the breathtaking architecture that stands as a testament to the stories within. Stepping through the doors, we were immersed in a world of history, art, and culture that left an indelible mark on our hearts.

The museum not only delved into the harrowing chapters of the Transatlantic Slave Trade but also highlighted the unwavering spirit of resilience that defined the African American community throughout history. From the fight for civil rights to the pursuit of liberties that transcend racial boundaries, our community gained a profound understanding of the struggles and triumphs that have shaped the nation we live in today.

One of the most inspiring aspects of our visit was discovering the immense impact of African Americans on various facets of American life. The museum showcased the significant contributions to science, music, cinema, and pop culture, demonstrating the profound influence that Black individuals have had on shaping the cultural landscape of our nation.

The Belfield Advisory Council extends heartfelt gratitude to all the volunteers (and Donnell)
