Plan to Board the Mothership in 2015

 

The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC), a Smithsonian museum slated to open in 2015 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., has announced its acquisition of Parliament Funkadelic's iconic Mothership, which will become a part of the museum's permanent music collection and exhibition. Though the original was destroyed, the museum's reproduction toured for many years with Parliament. Considering that he and his staff are building from the ground up, Director Lonnie Bunch continues to make interesting choices for the museum's permanent collection. There are dozens of African American museums telling parts of the story of the African American past. NMAAHC has the thrilling opportunity to tell a grand narrative that explores all the stories that can be told. Making it funky is the cherry on top.
