A new pop-up to celebrate Black female voices opened Saturday at Union Market in Washington, D.C.
The Museum for Black Girls is an interactive art installation dedicated to sharing the Black female experience. The space will highlight 10 featured artists and women of color creating interactive performances, installations and events, according to a press release.
The founder says despite the name, this museum is for everyone.
“We like to say it’s a space to educate, inspire and motivate everyone,” Charlie Billingsley said. “It’s a space to celebrate Black women and to celebrate our stories and how we’ve evolved.”
