A Place for All People

A Place for All People: Introducing the National Museum of African American History and Culture is a commemorative poster exhibition celebrating the opening of the Smithsonian’s newest museum Sept. 24, 2016. Based on the inaugural exhibitions of the museum, the posters highlight key artifacts that tell the rich and diverse story of the African American experience. A Place for All People is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) in collaboration with the museum.

Additionally, there is a display of Laura Haviland on loan from the Adrian Historical Museum. Laura Haviland was an abolitionist residing in Lenawee County in the first half of the nineteenth century conducting thousands of slaves through the Underground Railroad to safety.
