New digital project on found items and African American material history:
“On this Tumblr, we’re creating a “people’s museum” of personal objects, family photos and more, and people are telling us about how these items make up their own experience of black history in America. Explore the photos, songs, stories and more that contribute to our understanding of African American history and culture – and share your own story via the submit box (more info on our photo terms here). You can email email@example.com with any questions along the way.
This Tumblr is a project of The Washington Post. We’re bringing you more info on black history and cultural legacy as we cover the opening of the Smithsonian’s new National Museum of African American History and Culture. You can learn more here, or follow @nmaahc for more.”
