This exhibit highlights a selection of the artifacts that are on display at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition service in collaboration with the Smithsonian Museum, “A Place for All People” is based on the inaugural exhibitions of the museum. The posters highlight key artifacts that tell the rich and diverse story of the African-American experience.  

The exhibition presents a living history that reflects challenge, triumph, faith, and hope. The posters display the child-size shackles of a slave, the clothing worn by Carlotta Walls on her first day at Little Rock Central High School, the track shoes worn by Olympian Carl Lewis, and more. 

This colorful and informative exhibit, displayed for the month of February in honor of Black History Month, is available to the public during regular Library hours.
