A Place for All People is a historic poster exhibit celebrating the opening of the newest Smithsonian museum, the National Museum of African American History and Culture.  A Place for All People is generously supported by the Smithsonian Institution's Office of the Provost.


The African American story is one characterized by pain and glory, power and civility, enslavement and freedom. A Place for All People  will evoke the power of oration and freedom stories, the brilliance of artistic achievement, and the soaring heights of cultural expression, philosophy, sports, and politics. In addition to profiling the long struggle to create the Museum, the building’s architectural design and its prominent location on the National Mall, the poster exhibit is a survey of the African American community’s powerful, deep and lasting contributions to the American story.


The Oregon State Capitol will have the exhibit on display October 24 through November 4, 2016.
