of African American
History & Culture
The National Museum of African American History and Culture is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history and culture. The museum opened to the public in September 2016 as the newest museum of the Smithsonian Institution. NMAAHC needed a logo to capture the spirit of their new museum located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.. Inspiration was drawn from the museum's iconic crown-like architectural form designed by the African British architect David Adjaye. The logo incorporates type designed by acclaimed African American type designer Joshua Darden.
