American DBE Magazine Special Issue profiles minority contractors who built African American Museum in Washington, D.C.

RALEIGH, N.C. – In spring 2018, American DBE Magazine published a special edition featuring the minority contractors and suppliers who designed, built and coordinated construction of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC), located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Deryl McKissack, president and CEO of McKissack and McKissack—the lead project manager for the museum—said, “Our role was to manage the design and construction to ensure that the Smithsonian Institution’s intent for the building was carried out.” Numerous minority-owned firms were responsible for the design, engineering, architecture, construc-tion and up-fitting of the iconic building. Some of the firms highlighted in the publication include: Clark Construction Group, Freelon Adjaye Bond/Smith Group, H.J. Russell & Co., McKissack & McKissack, and Regional Contracting Ser-vices, among others.

“The National Museum of African American History and Culture is a place that mourns and honors the experience of African Americans in our nation’s history,” said Shelton Russell, publisher of American DBE Magazine. He continued: “This magazine issue celebrates our unique contributions  at every level. Nationwide, there are more than 44,000 DBE firm owners and employees, and several thousand more contractors, transportation officials, consultants and DBE program administrators. The mission of American DBE Magazine is to provide information, industry news, innovations and proven Best Practices to diverse businesses, administrators and stakeholders in the DBE program.”
