It's not a done deal..but I have great news to share. update #1
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.

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"
