Watch History in the making at the Ali Cultural Arts Center
Join the City of Pompano Beach as they host a watch party as the Smithsonian Institution opens its newest museum, the National Museum of African American History and Culture. The celebration will reach beyond Washington, D.C., sharing the excitement in Pompano Beach at the Historic Ali Cultural Arts Center. The doors will open at 9 a.m. and the live stream of the ceremony begins at 10 a.m.
The “Lift Every Voice” global watch party is free and open to the public and will include an opening African ceremony, dance and drum performance, free African food and a marketplace of African inspired products. The event organizers have an open call to vendors who want to be a part of their African market and this historic event.
Like the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the historic Ali Cultural Arts Center is a place where people can learn about the richness and diversity of the African American experience; it is a place of meaning, memory, reflection, laughter, and hope.
The National Museum of African American History and Culture is the 19th museum of the Smithsonian Institution and is located at the foot of the Washington Monument on the National Mall in Washington, DC. The museum provides for the collection, study, and establishment of programs and exhibitions related to African American life, history, art, and culture.
