The National Museum of African American history, which is scheduled to open in 2015, is currently in the process of curating an exhibit that will highlight the strides of African American women. But they’re doing so in a very unique way, through fashion. They’ll show how black women have fought to achieve their dreams by featuring the clothes they were while fighting. For instance the exhibit includes a dress Lena Horne wore in one of her many films, pictured above and below. The dress was donated by her daughter.

 

Check out the video below to see which other pieces of clothing will make it into the exhibit:
