A Seat at the Table is a signature program that critically examines social justice issues that impact the African American community. Participants observe a conversation on a select topic amongst an expert panel. After the conversation, diners engage in an interactive activity to consider challenging questions about race, identity, and economic justice over a meal. Through this program, participants can make new connections, exchange resources, and return to bond over the next meal. Most importantly, participants state how they will apply insights gained from having a seat at the table to their own lives. 

NMAAHC’s central mission is to interpret the history and culture of African Americans. However, the Museum seeks also to present a critical examination of the social barriers faced by African Americans. These conversations are not always easy, but the Museum is committed to facilitating these moments for reflection.
