National Museum of African American History and Culture
Afrofuturism often incorporates a historical reconstruction of the past and many science fiction writers are often inspired by the real-life stories of African Americans serving in the military. Attend one of our History Alive! programs and hear real stories about Blacks in the military and explore themes of freedom, self-determination, citizenship, valor, and much, much more. Two years, five months and nineteen days after the Emancipation Proclamation, Blacks in Galveston, Texas found out about Mr. Lincoln’s order. In the course of this program visitors will learn what it meant and why we celebrated it today. For the event site, click here.
