“This national museum helps to tell a richer and fuller story of who we are,” Obama said. “It helps us better understand the lives of yes, the president, but also the slave. The industrialist but also the porter. The keeper of the status quo but also the activist seeking to overthrow that status quo.”

The opening’s three-day celebration is a star-studded event, including “musical performances, dance, spoken word, oral history activities and evening concerts.”
