Roland Martin talks to author and historian Lonnie Bunch about the opening of the opening of the National Museum of African-American History and Culture.
“My biggest fear was, ‘could we find the great stuff of history?’. We found things from a sunken slave ship. Families have brought out photographs. We actually have Nat Turner’s Bible. People have been waiting for this museum and we’ll be able to tell their stories. And we didn’t take anything from other museums. Most of what we had came from our community,” Bunch said.
