3. Invests in Our History

Disney contributed to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, a 400,000 square foot museum in Washington, D.C. that will inform guests about the challenges and triumphs of African Americans in the United States over its history.  Celebrating the many contributions of African Americans, the museum will feature photos, printed material, clothing, and other artifacts spanning the years from the days of slavery to the Civil Rights movement and beyond.  Disney certainly knows about archives and has been utilizing one of their own to collect and preserve their past since 1970, but their support of historical archives that are important to our country is truly inspiring.  Photo credit Wikiwand
