The Afrocentric Corona Pen Celebrates Museum of Black History and Culture

Corona Pen Celebrates Museum of Black History and Culture

*Retro 51’s new Afrocentric Corona pen honors the National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opened in 2016 in Washington D.C. Just as the NMAAHC is the only museum of its kind, the Corona is also one-of-a-kind. Each individual pen is numbered, as marked on its top ring.

The ergonomic rollerball pen features a deeply-etched barrel that echoes the bronze-colored metal lattice – or “Corona” – that covers the museum’s exterior. The design itself is a tribute to the intricate ironwork handcrafted by southern African American slaves before the Civil War.

The pen is a joy to hold and use, with a twist top, acid-etched texture and matte black nickel accents. It is the first pen to be part of Retro 51’s newly-licensed Smithsonian collection.

Best of all, a portion of every purchase is donated to the NMAAHC, supporting its mission of telling the story of African American life, history and culture.

Each pen arrives in a commemorative tube, which makes it a great gift for birthdays, Kwanzaa and Black History Month. The Corona is refillable with Retro 51 ballpoint and/or rollerball cartridges, so it’s also earth-friendly.

Corona’s MSRP is $55. For a list of dealers, visit, where “life is too short to carry an ugly pen.”
