A blizzard blankets DC's citywide closure including all the museums, but most notably this month the National Museum of African American History and Culture. As a milliner, my first and only visit shortly after it opened in 2016 had me completely overwhelmed. So very much information in one space, I gobbled up all that I could in the six hours earmarked for the day trip. Two and a half full days is suggested. Of course, I made sure to see the millinery exhibit featuring DC's first lady of hats, Vanilla Beane, and Philly's Mae Reaves. They were both pioneering entrepreneurs and community leaders and should not be missed once they city is opened again.
