African American History Museum Los Angeles
James Brown’s red suit. Collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Museum staff has traveled far and wide—from DC to Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, Topeka, and beyond—collecting artifacts to fill the space. Since 2008, they’ve been working on “Save Our African American Treasures, ” an Antique Roadshow-like program dedicated to preserving and collecting items of African American culture. Sure, the museum added James Brown’s organ and red suit to its collection. But it also has relics found in regular people’s basements and attics. Other items come from the present: “Black Lives Matter” T-shirts, which Bunch says a curator might find handy 50 years from now.
