Description

Jimi Hendrix profoundly shaped the sound of rock guitar and influenced the direction of popular music. He was also a fashion icon of the psychedelic 1960s. The appearance of a Black man dressed so freely during the civil rights era made a powerful impression on his audience, including the crowd at the 1969 Newport Pop Festival where Hendrix performed in a silk kimono much like one owned and worn by him that is part of the National Museum of African American History and Culture's Afrofuturism: A History of Black Futures exhibition. Our vintage-inspired t-shirt celebrates that iconic Newport performance and supports museum programming.

Museum Story

The National Museum of African American History and Culture is the nation's largest and most comprehensive cultural destination devoted exclusively to exploring, documenting, and showcasing the African American story and its impact on American and world history. Established by an Act of Congress in 2003, it is the culmination of decades of efforts to establish a national museum that promotes and highlights the contributions of African Americans. To date, the Museum has collected close to 37,000 objects.

Its newest exhibition, Afrofuturism: A History of Black Futures, explores the past, present, and future of this dynamic concept that features the various people, unique themes and radical artistry that have given voice to it.
