Join us for the pre-conference visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture

In alignment with the 2018 conference theme, “Beyond White Normativity: Creating Brave Spaces,” the 2018 conference will commence with a pre-conference excursion to one of the brave spaces established in September 2016, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. The excursion will include careful observations of the D.C culture as we travel from the Hyatt Regency Reston (1800 Presidents Street, Reston, Virginia, 20190) to the museum (located at 1400 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C.) via the Metro rail. Participants will purchase subway passes at the entry station for $5.35. Entrance to the museum is free. You will have over 4 hours to explore more than 36,000 artifacts at the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture. Following the museum experience participants may stay downtown for dinner, or return to the conference hotel. This special “Beyond White Normativity” excursion will be limited to the first 30 people who sign up. To sign up go to Log into Sched and choose this pre-conference on your own schedule.
