Five Things for Today: June 4, 2020

The National Museum of African American History & Culture on the National Mall

1. This was shared in Monday’s post, but added late, so I wanted to highlight again… The National Museum of African American History and Culture just launched a new portal called Talking About Race, which is full of resources for discussing, teaching, and learning about race and racism. (Read more about the museum in this KFDC post.)

2. This Pickett’s Charge inspired craft activity from the Hirshhorn looks fun and easy to do. You probably recognize the work from the walls of the museum’s third level. Learn more about it and the artist Mark Bradford, whose work “addresses sociopolitical issues such as race, class, and gender while also engaging art history,” here and more here.

3. How to help protestors in DC. (We saw @freedomfightersdc stations at the Capitol protest yesterday providing water, food, and more supplies to anyone who needed… it was well organized and amazing support for everyone there.) This article on The Cut has more places where donations can be made to help support the struggle against police brutality.

4. DC businesses authorized to reopen in Phase One can pick up a starter PPE package courtesy of Mayor Bowser and Downtown DC BID. Sign up here to participate in the offer and find your pick-zone. — and share this with any business owners reopening now.

5. Why he knelt.
