As NBC4-Washington got ready for the opening of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture, I got to get in on the action by going to the concert-portion of the actual opening ceremony
After packing my portable phone charger, grabbing a notebook and practicing my introduction—“Hi, my name is Chelsea, and I’m with NBC4-Washington. Do you mind if I ask you a few questions about the museum opening?”—I was off for a night I’ll never forget. The crowd was huge, dancing along to a live performance by Public Enemy, enjoying southern comfort food, and celebrating black history and culture with enthusiasm. I met folks from all over the country, of all ages, from all different backgrounds, all united to celebrate the museum’s opening.
