Triumph of truth: new museum upends 'great denial' of African American history - David Smith
The Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture is a tour de force of more than 3,000 artifacts with a mission to ‘tell the unvarnished truth’
"Black civil war veterans first proposed an African American museum in 1915. Congress approved its creation in 2003, and construction of the 400,000 sq ft building took almost four years."
