National Museum of American Jewish History

Composer, jazz trumpeter, and community activist Hannibal Lokumbe, the Philadelphia Orchestra's Composer-in-Residence, has composed two intriguing works for string quartet that explore the lives of two heroic women, Anne Frank and Fannie Lou Hamer.  Check out the performances by Philadelphia Orchestra musicians on Saturday, February 25th at the African American Museum in Philadelphia and the National Museum of American Jewish History.

Join Jill as she interviews Dr. Josh Perelman, Deputy Director for Exhibitions, Programs and Collections, and Michael Rosenzweig, President and CEO of the National Museum of American Jewish History. They discuss the founding of the museum, the role it plays as the country's only museum dedicated exclusively to telling the still-unfolding story of Jews in America, and the importance of its status as a Smithsonian affiliate institution.
