Since opening in September 2016, the National Museum of African American History and Culture has been immensely popular with visitors. Now Dartmouth alumni, family, and friends are invited to an exclusive event at the museum with Rembert Browne ’09, Annette Gordon-Reed ’81 P’15, and Professor Steve Swayne. From Harriett Tubman to Black Lives Matter, the National Museum of African American History and Culture celebrates American history through more than 36,000 artifacts and 17 exhibits, including “Taking the Stage,” “Visual Art and the American Experience,” and “Slavery and Freedom.”

During this panel, Rembert Browne ’09, a writer who focuses on popular culture, politics, and sports, will moderate a conversation on slavery, sports, music, and the African American political experience. Annette Gordon-Reed ’81 P’15 is a Dartmouth Trustee, a professor of law and history at Harvard University, and the author of The Hemingses of Monticello. Steve Swayne is the Jacob H. Strauss 1922 Professor of Music at Dartmouth, where he teaches courses in art music from 1700 to the present day, opera, American musical theater, Russian music, and American music.

Due to the size of the crowd, questions for the panelists will be taken via email ahead of the event. Please email any questions you have to by March 5.
