The latest from Capitol File's Publisher, Suzy Jacobs.
Discussing all things fashion with Dr. Noelle Sherber, Cameron Silver, and Candace Sherber at America Eats Tavern by José Andrés.
In fashion as in life, September tends to be associated with a turning point—particularly in DC. With Congress back in session, kids returning to school, and cooler days and nights, most of us begin contemplating these fresh starts in the relaxed days toward the end of summer. While some of you are reading this issue of Capitol File with your toes in the sand as you savor one final trip to the beach, others may have decided to wait for September to make the great getaway.
In either case, there’s a sense of optimism in the air this month. And this September brings many new beginnings. The one I’m most enthusiastic about is the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. I drive down Pennsylvania Avenue on the daily and have witnessed every distinct element added—all topped by the bronze-coated alloy. It’s an amazing structure and most likely the last museum to be built on the National Mall.

So we have been witness to history, which is oh-so DC cool. I am truly looking forward to walking the halls and experiencing the thoughtful and educational exhibits that are part of so many of our residents’ history. This opening will be a DC experience to remember!
