Maurice Cherry’s renowned design podcast Revision Path is making history as the first podcast to be added to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture permanent collection.

The heavily-accoladed, weekly podcast has received honors from the Creative Market Awards and the American Institute of Graphic Arts. According to Fast Company, the podcast was launched in February 2013 and focuses on celebrating the work of Black people across various creative fields, including web design, software development, graphic design, illustration, animation, and creative and art direction.

Morehouse alum Cherry, who is a web designer and hosts Revision Path, was stunned to learn about the NMAAHC news.

“I never would have imagined this to happen,” he said in a released announcement. “This is truly not just a big accomplishment, but it’s also proof that Black designers and developers are out here and worthy of celebration.”

The museum selected 11 episodes of the podcast's 300-hundred episode catalog to add to their permanent collection, reports HypeBeast. Featured interview episodes include conversations with architect Craig L. Wilkins, and Black Panther production designer and Academy Award winner Hannah Beachler.
