NeNe Leakes has just added a new achievement to her growing roster: she has been included in an exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture, which opened on September 24. The Real Housewives of Atlanta pal shared a photo of the exhibit, which includes a still of her from RHOA.
"On another note, how bout y'all give it up for your girl being in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture located in Washington DC," she wrote on Instagram.
Rashida Jones and her music mogul dad, Quincy Jones, also headed to the capital to view the museum during its first weekend in business. She, too, showed off some of the museum's exhibits on her Instagram.
On the Saturday the museum opened, President Barack Obama was on hand to open its doors. The opening ceremony was also attended by First Lady Michelle Obama as well as former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. The event included performances by Stevie Wonder and Patti LaBelle, and appearances from Robert De Niro and Angela Bassett. "This national museum helps to tell a richer and fuller story of who we are," the President said, according to CNN. "By knowing this other story we better understand ourselves and each other. It binds us together. It reaffirms that all of us are America, that African-American history is not somehow separate from our larger American story. It is central to the American story."
