The Power of Place exhibit at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC vividly tells the powerful story of a crippling race riot in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1921. The exhibit, and museum as a whole, are not to be missed. Teachers consider adding this museum to your roster of field trips for the 2017-2018 field trip school year. Plan your trip in advance as reserved tickets at the popular museum are booked months in advance. http://ow.ly/98eL309DgUM
