I've been in contact with the curator of the (NMAAHC) Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture).. Looks like they want the family to donate a few pieces to the exhibit.  (Keep your fingers crossed that we have what they are looking for)..I am beyond excited..  This would be such a wonderful thing for my kid to see..

The National Mall will open in 2015..Again, IF our pieces are accepted they will be on displays at the Smithsonian for 15yrs.  

***happy dance*** **happy dance***


7/10- I got a letter from the curator today asking if I would donate the item to the museum for further inspection. I'm going to call tomorrow and make arrangement to get the item to the museum. I want to hand deliver it. I think it would be a nice treat to go there  with the kid and hand deliver the item..That would make for good discussion when asked "what did you do this summer"

What an amazing honor!!! You should definity take dd to see them on display even if she has seen those items at home. My great uncle had items on display when i was a kid. My dad, mom, and sister have seen them but they are back in archive now. I really Wish i could have seen them. Do you mind sharing pics of some of your items? I would love to see them.
