(Washington, DC) Black History Month Kickoff Celebration at African American Civil War Memorial Museum

The African American Civil War Memorial Museum is conveniently located near Howard University, the U Street corridor, and the Spirit of Freedom sculpture. A WMATA train practically pulls up to it’s front door.

It was happenstance, the day that a friend and I visited the museum and found Virginia Ali of Ben’s Chili Bowl success there addressing a captive audience. Also to my surprise was the presence of African American Civil War re-enactors (living historians) there in full garb.

The African American Civil War Memorial Museum is one of the lesser talked about cultural resources in Washington DC. It should be experienced at least once by locals and those visiting town. Tomorrow Friday February 1, 2019 will be a great opportunity to do so.

Washington, DC FRIDAY FEBRUARY 1, 2019 DC Black History Celebration Committee Presents “Black History Month Kickoff Celebration” 6-8 PM at the African American Civil War Memorial Museum. The program will include a keynote speaker, a community awards ceremony, followed by a reception.
