A Place For All People

Smithsonian Exhibition at Burlington Court

National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The Smithsonian poster exhibition is an opportunity to showcase the many stories of African American and African diaspora people and their contributions to the local community and the American story. Visit the display near Burlington Court now through February 29.  Organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) in collaboration with the National Museum of African American History and Culture, “A Place for All People” highlights key artifacts that tell the rich and diverse story of the African American experience. From the child-size shackles of a slave and the clothing worn by Carolotta Walls on her first day at Little Rock Central High School to Chuck Berry’s Gibson guitar, “Maybellene,” and the track shoes worn by Olympian Carl Lewis, the exhibition presents a living history that reflects challenge, triumph, faith and hope.
