#151: Segregation in America
By Mark Isero • Issue #151 • View online
Last week I visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture as part of a trip to Washington DC. The exhibition was outstanding, and the experience was deeply moving. The impact hit me right when I entered the museum’s doors. About 80 percent of museum-goers were African American, a stark contrast to the almost exclusively white tourists outside, several of whom wore red MAGA hats. In our segregated country, where we are living vastly different experiences, this museum, though it shares unapologetically our violent history, is a safe space and a national treasure.
