New Finds For The African American Museum

There’s a new museum going up in Washington, D.C., and although its doors won’t open until 2015, every few months here on weekends on All Things Considered, we get an early peek at the collection that’s taking shape.

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture will stand just a few hundred feet from the Washington Monument, making it the newest museum on the National Mall.

Recently, host Guy Raz sat down with the museum’s director, Lonnie Bunch, to see some of latest things he’s collected from around the world. This time he started by showing off a 19th-century watercolor painting of a slave ship on its way to America. [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
