The long awaited opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, happened in September.   It is a beautiful building, and likely the last of anything that will be built on the National Mall in Washington.  In a Smithsonian interview, Architect David Adjaye said the "primary spirit behind" his plan was one of "praise."  He envisioned it as "a human posture.  It's the idea that you come from the ground up ... the form of the building suggests a very upward mobility."     story        

Principle in the type;  "I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart; I am, I am, I am."     Sylvia Plath
