African American Civil War Museum reopening in DC

WASHINGTON (AP) — The African American Civil War Museum in Washington is celebrating its grand reopening in a new, larger location.

Events were held all weekend and Monday. On Saturday the new location in northwest Washington hosted a series of discussions on topics ranging from teaching the civil war to women in the civil rights movement. On Sunday the museum hosted a film festival.

The original African American Civil War Museum opened on U Street in 1999 near the African American Civil War Memorial. Its new location at 1925 Vermont Ave. NW provides about 5,000 square feet after a $5 million renovation. The original location only had about 700 square feet.
