Two weekends ago, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture opened its doors to the public. Three of the 7 creators of the Mirror Casket (myself included), journeyed to D.C. for the grand opening festivities, and a peak into the incredible and unprecedented new museum. The three traveling artists, myself, De Andrea Nichols and Marcis Curtis gave presentations at Georgetown University and Busboys & Poets, and shared the story of the Mirror Casket, as well as other artivism projects that we have grown out of Ferguson.
