INSIDE THE AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY MUSEUM

Architecture photographer Jason Flakes brings his unique lens to the Smithsonian's newest museum. The museum and its 35,000 treasured artifacts are telling a new story about America. In what will likely be the last new building on the National Mall, the museum represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reintroduce important ideas and themes to an eager public.
