Back in 1926 when Dr. Carter G. Woodson organized a weeklong celebration of African-American contributions to the history of the United States, he probably never envisioned just how his idea would blossom. Today, Americans of all ethnicities recognize the month of February as a time to honor the bountiful legacy of Black history. Hosted by television journalist and fashion model Gail O’Neill, the Museum’s celebration features brilliant artists whose unique voices are helping to define some of this country’s most dynamic cultural expressions: Camille A. Brown & Dancers; composer-pianist Samora Abayomi Pinderhughes; the award-winning Young People’s Chorus of New York City;  The New Orleans Swamp Donkeys Traditional Jass Band; and returning favorites NEA Jazz Master Delfeayo Marsalis with special guest Darryl "DMC” McDaniels of multi-platinum hip-hop group Run-DMC.
