Public Enemy, The Roots to Perform at New Smithsonian Museum Opening

By Sameer Rao Sep 08, 2016

The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) will celebrate its opening later this month with a suite of dope programming, including a festival with pioneering Black musicians and bands.

Public Enemy, Living Colour, Meshell Ndegeocello and The Roots will all perform during a three-day festival on Washington, D.C.’s National Mall. Called "Freedom Sounds: A Community Celebration," the festival starts on September 23, one day before the NMAAHC cuts the ribbon and open its doors to the public.
