Scheduled to open in early 2020, the National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) exists to educate the world, preserve the legacy and celebrate the central role African Americans play in creating the American soundtrack. Acting as a “Museum Without Walls,” NMAAM currently provides educational programming to illuminate the many connections and influences African American composers have had on more than 50 genres and styles of music. Join NMAAM for a demonstration of From Nothing to Something (FN2S), a program that explores the transformative, inspirational and educational influence of music history and techniques used by African Americans to turn common, household items into musical instruments.
