Wright Museum of African American History—a museum dedicated to exploring and celebrating the rich cultural legacy of African Americans. Joined by Yolanda Jack, Director, Actress, and Coordinator of Youth Programs at The Wright, they explore ideas of history, diaspora, and iconography, in what it means for a monument of Black culture to be built right here in the city of Detroit.
