Black women’s archives to move
The National Park Service said it plans to move the National Archives for Black Women’s History to its museum resource center from the carriage house at Mary McLeod Bethune Council House National Historic Site.
The Park Service said the carriage house is not suitable for the archives.
The collection will be moved in the next few weeks to the Park Service’s Museum Resource Center in Landover.
The Bethune Council House, at 1318 Vermont Ave. NW, was the first headquarters of the National Council of Negro Women and the Washington home of the famed educator, civil rights leader and presidential adviser.
