WAMU 88.5 : The Kojo Nnamdi Show

The National Museum of African Art at 50

In 1964, a former U.S. State Department diplomat started the Museum of African Art in a historic Capitol Hill townhouse once owned by Frederick Douglass. The museum opened in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement with the mission "to foster cross cultural communications between people through education in the arts of Africa." It was renamed the National Museum of African Art in 1981 and relocated to the National Mall in 1987. Kojo explores the history of a unique local art institution.
