The National Museum of African American History and Culture and its opening events have attracted worldwide attention
One of the Johnson family photographs taken at the beach was selected by the National Museum of African American History and Culture for its “Power of Place” exhibit.
The Eastville Community Historical Society’s headquarters and museum are in a house donated by Lippman Johnson and Rose Johnson, above, along with a trove of other photographs of his family.
Georgette Grier-Key, the executive director and curator of the Eastville Community Historical Society, attended a museum preview earlier this month, pausing for a photograph next to Chuck Berry’s car.
Frank Hunter was one of the first African-American chief petty officers in the Navy. His commanding officer recommended him for a Medal of Honor for his attempt to save a fellow shipmate.
Frank Hunter’s great-grandson, Franklin Wilks, was at the opening and dedication of the museum last weekend. He has requested that the Navy give his ancestor the Medal of Honor posthumously.
In addition to his great-grandfather’s photograph, Mr. Wilks also gave the museum his continuous record of service, which documents his activities through all of his years of active duty.
