Descriptive Entry
The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) was established on December 16, 2003, when President George W. Bush signed the National Museum of African American History and Culture Act (PL 108-184) into law, establishing the museum as part of the Smithsonian Institution. The new museum will be devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, art, history and culture. The museum's collections will cover topics such as slavery, post-Civil War Reconstruction, the Harlem Renaissance and the civil rights movement. This accession consists of planning records for NMAAHC and includes materials related to the African American Institutional Study, 1991; task force meetings of the National African American Museum Project, 1992-1993; and the Plan for Action Presidential Commission, 2001-2003. Materials include reports, surveys, research materials, and other related records.
