    Why no major Martin Luther King Jr. artifacts will be at the new African American museum


    ... “It was heavier than I thought it would be,” remembers Ellis, the museum’s associate director of curatorial affairs. “Not only was it the weight of the object itself but the weight of what it was. You’re holding it like it’s a baby. I was uncomfortable holding it for long.”

    Ellis and his colleagues didn’t hold it for long. The half-hour meeting with Martin III ended without a loan, a gift or any other promises. The Bible and a second key item, the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to King in 1964, were placed back into a bank vault ...

    'Enthusiasm has been overwhelming': African-American history museum prepares for huge crowds


    WASHINGTON – Of the thousands of artifacts that will be displayed at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, none give Mary Elliott the chills like the shackles that were used on children transported on slave ships from Africa, or the whip used to keep slaves in line ...

    ... Phil Freelon, an architect from Durham, led the design group. He also helped design the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

    "We wanted something that was distinctive, but not in a way that was alarming, let's say, or did not fit in," he said.
