The 100-Year Mission To Create
The National Museum Of African American History And Culture
By Robert L. Wilkins
Events at the Indianapolis Public Library
Individuals of all ages are invited as author Judge Robert L. Wilkins discusses his new book, “Long Road to Hard Truth: The 100-Year Mission to Create the National Museum of African American History and Culture.” Wilkins was a member of the presidential commission that planned the museum. His book tells the story of the quest that began in 1916 for the institution, inspired as a reaction to the slander of the film, “Birth of a Nation,” and the segregation and discrimination against African Americans. A book signing will follow the discussion. Seating is limited to 90 attendees. This program will be held in the Center for Black Literature & Culture at Central Library.
