Ray Charles Promoting A Smithsonian Exhibition (1996)

'96 DM Smithsonian

In 1996 Ray Charles contributed to a promotion for the America’s Smithsonian exhibition national tour, celebrating the 150th anniversary of this institute.

The Smithsonian keeps photos (collection ID# SIA Acc 97-074) and VHS tapes (SIA Acc. 05-058) of the event.

(Since 2005, the Smithsonian also displays a rather sinister permanent exposition of RC memorabilia).
