Northwest African American Museum Holds Grand Reopening Almost Three Years After Closure

The Northwest African American Museum (NAAM) in Seattle has reopened after being closed for nearly three years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The reopening coincides with Martin Luther King Jr. Day and will feature music, tours, movies, speakers, and family-friendly activities. The museum, which is located in the historic Colman School in the city's Central District, has had hundreds of thousands of visitors since opening in 2008. The theme for the year 2023 is based on a quote from Martin Luther King Jr. and Jesse Williams will host a moderated conversation about the theme. There will also be featured exhibitions that can be viewed through June 19th. This really is great!
