Charleston Needs That African American Museum. And Now.

Michael Kimmelman of the New York times emphasizes the need for the realization of the International African American Museum in Charleston, South Carolina. He traces the history behind the development of this “…graceful project, long discussed and years overdue;” the plans for the Museum’s architectural and landscape design; and the power and importance of its location on Gadsden's Wharf on Charleston Harbor, the most active North American port of arrival in the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
