Another one of Bethunes dresses is also being loaned by the Mary McLeod National Council, which was the first headquarters of the National Council of Negro Women and Bethunes last home in Washington.When you have clothing in permanent or long-term exhibition, they cant just stay out, Mack said. They will fade or damage. You have to rotate them.The Mary McLeod Bethune home on B-CUs campus was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1974. Its visited by about 700 people each year, and most come from out of town, Robertson said. To have some aspects from the home moved to the Smithsonian, which received an estimated 28 million visitors to its museums in 2014, is going to expose Bethunes legacy to more people across the world.We are definitely excited and grateful to be chosen for this opportunity, she said.
