The newest Smithsonian museum is set to open to the public Sept. 24 in Washington, D.C. It will be the first national museum devoted exclusively to African-American history and culture. A campaign has been underway for at least eight years to obtain artifacts, documents and other items for its permanent collection. VOA's Chris Simkins has more on the story.
