History was made and we were there. It was a blessing beyond blessings as to witness the history and culture as interpreted by the National Museum of African-American History and Culture was remarkable.

These Globetrekkers made history by making the journey to the inaugural opening of the National Museum of African-American History and Culture. It started out as just two people but through the months and the weeks it grew and eventually to what is shown below.
Our theme was simple: witness history while partaking in a Foodie excursion.
Row 2 – Paula, Phillips Ranch, CA, Maryum, Los Angeles, CA; James, San Francisco, CA; Janice, Pennsauken, NJ.
Joining our Globetrekkin’ Crew was our dear friend and world famous “Foodie” and Roller-Coaster enthusiast, Renie Hale and our other Washingtonian OG, the dynamic Justine Love and her beautiful friend Frances from South Carolina.
This is the full video almost 2 hours of the historic opening ceremonies.
This is the masterpiece presented by Valerie and Jacques Bordeaux – 12 minutes.
