Meet Zena Howard, one of the architects for the nation’s newest museum that has been a century in the making – the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. She’s the daughter of civil rights activists and is one of the 0.2 percent of black, female architects.

Museum collections range from a dress Rosa Parks was making before her 1955 arrest to Chuck Berry’s Cadillac. The museum is set to open Sept. 24 and is located near the Washington monument.
