Get in the groove

Staff had the opportunity to fellowship and experience a sensory historical journey together.

Last month, in honor of Black History Month, the staff had the opportunity to fellowship and experience a sensory historical journey together.

To start off the festivities, staff gathered at the Assembly Food Hall where they feasted on delicious food and were able to catch up, reminisce, and enjoy some laughs.

Then it was onto The National Museum of African American Music. Per their website it is “the only museum dedicated to preserving and celebrating the many music genres created, influenced, and inspired by African Americans. The museum’s expertly-curated collections share the story of the American soundtrack by integrating history and interactive technology to bring the musical heroes of the past into the present.”

We began with an immersive film experience in the Roots Theater and then were able to explore the six galleries at our own pace.

Several of our staff members enjoyed their museum experience so much that they have or are now becoming members.

Big thanks to Helen Allen for coordinating the day’s activities on our behalf.

If you weren’t able to join the team event, we’d encourage you to explore the museum on your own in the future. You can get information to plan your visit at: https://nmaam.org/

Whether you were able to attend or not, we hope you’ll enjoy this photo gallery from this team excursion.
