Our 1st day in Washington was supposed to be spent at the #smithsonianafricanamericanmuseum but the government #shutdown changed all of that. No worries, we hit #georgetown instead. So much beautiful architecture in this historic community. The university, the row houses, and the people were all gorgeous. And to top it off - I got to see the #exorciststeps you’ve no idea the childhood memories attached to that film & those stairs. My mom was proud I’m sure 😆 #liveyourlife

As we were walking around we stopped to look in the National African American Museum. It’s a very impressive building with a lot of great exhibits. #havingfun #walkingarounddc #adventuretime #smithsonianmuseum #smithsonianafricanamericanmuseum #allmenarecreatedequal

Ah, 2019! Another year. And, yes, we rather believe that “A change is gonna come.” #2019 #2019intentions #newyear #newyearwishes #newyearintentions #smithsonianafricanamericanmuseum #arethafranklin #samcooke

“I’m just trying to do the best painting of the individuals who have piqued my curiosity and made me want to paint them.”—Barkley L. Hendricks The artist was a pioneer of black portraiture that combined art history with questions about identity and cultural heritage. Like Kerry James Marshall, Hendricks sought to address the absence of black presence in art. He became best known for life-size paintings of black men in stylish clothing set against bold, monochromatic backdrops.

Happy Veterans Day to all who have served. Thank you to those who have served a country that may not have served you. Thinking of my Granddad today who was in the first class of negros to train as Tuskegee Airmen. A group of men who fought (and dominated!) in a Air Corp who wanted nothing from them. SWIPE to read about the airmen’s beginnings and peep their poster boy 😉. Keep swiping to see George L. Knox in the bottom right corner of a photo of the airmen from the #smithsonianafricanamericanmuseum #proud #black #history

In front of my drawing at the first Smithsonian African American Film Festival. I had the opportunity to make a film with amazing actor / musician Pauletta Washington. My experience at the festival was truly significant and spiritual. This motivates me to work harder and smarter. #aafilmfest #smithsonianmuseum #smithsonianafricanamericanmuseum #africanamericanmuseum #inspiration #inspirational #paulettawashington #motivational #mindfulness #norishirasu #theartofnori #achievement #successful @johndavidwashington

No filter needed... today is the day we can make a difference. Our ancestors suffered, fought, and died for our right to vote. Protesting and marching is great... but it’s time for us to march and protest to the polls. And on a completely ignorant side note (because you all know I’m a fool) I had no idea Hampton’s most illustrious alumni Booker T. Washington had such beautiful eyes... 😍. Anyway I digressed...

I certainly felt that I was a part of history when I saw this at Smithsonian African American Museum! I was a regular on Soul Train from 1998-2000. It is a big deal to me since many of us Asian male dancers weren’t exposed so much back then. I did the Scramble board the first day I got there, then stayed there for 2 years 😊 I miss those days! #soultrain #soultraindancers #africanamericanmuseum #smithsonianmuseum #aafilmfest #memory #smithsonianafricanamericanmuseum #norishirasu #theartofnori #museum #inspiration #motivation #doncornelius #90s #dancers

Invited to the first Smithsonian African American Film Festival in DC was such an honorable experience. It was my debut as a filmmaker and it was an extremely spiritual experience. Many dreams I had came all true in a very short period of time. It certainly ensured that Im in the right track. I must continue with my journey. By the way, this is my new friend I made at the festival, the Deputy Director, Kinshasha of NMAAHC. I must work faster so that I can go back there again! 🙏🎁 #aafilmfest #smithsonianmuseum #smithsonianafricanamericanmuseum #inspirational #magical #filmfestivals #motivation #success #mindset #mindfulness #africanamericanmuseum #norishirasu #theartofnori #redcarpet #filmfestival

The great significance of a door. African American slaves weren’t always allowed them. Once free, they could attach doors to their homes bringing privacy and dignity. This is a must see, the Museum of African American History and Culture. #doorfortoday #doors #doorsofinstagram #smithsonianafricanamericanmuseum #washingtondc #slavery #freedom

Spent the day hanging out on the Mall and museum hoping. The African American History and Culture Museum was definitely one of the best museums I’ve been to! 🇺🇸 #washingtondc #washingtonmonument #lincolnmemorial #smithsonianafricanamericanmuseum #nmaahc

My trip to D.C. 2 weeks ago was amazing...this work/pleasure trip had great weather and my friends hospitality was awesome as well. First off, i found a little piece of the south with stumbling upon a chickfila and it blessed my soul lol. I got to see one of my longtime friends get married to the love of his life, create memories in Baltimore with some new friends, and love of my LS. The DMV was good to me...and i'll be back soon 😜. #dc #museums #smithsonian #smithsonianafricanamericanmuseum #chickfila
