Senator David Perdue Attends National African American History Museum Dedication

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Smithsonian Board of Regents, today released the following statement after attending the dedication ceremony for the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture:  

“Today, was nothing short of historic and it was a privilege to attend the dedication ceremony of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Georgia’s own John Lewis has worked tirelessly on this museum through inception to completion. Bonnie and I applaud everyone—the curators, architects, builders, donors, and most importantly, the African American community—on the opening of this new museum, which powerfully captures an important part of our nation’s history and will teach future generations so much about their fellow Americans.”
