The inaugural exhibit, Let Your Motto be Resistance, highlights the lives of African American activists, scholars and poets and includes images from the National Portrait Gallery.  The “Share Your Memory” section of the museum allows users to upload family photographs and to tell their stories of triumph and resistance.
