Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History Set to Honor President Obama
Exhibit will display objects, documents and images from his first and second terms.
The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture is set to create an exhibit featuring artifacts from President Barack Obama's first and second terms.
One section will feature a large display about the first black president. Curators have been working since 2008 to gather objects, documents and images that capture his place in history. They are looking add more to the collection, starting with gathering materials from this weeks inauguration ceremony.
"There's so much commercially produced stuff that people don't go to the trouble anymore," says curator William Pretzer . "It's the personal expression, as opposed to the commercial that the museum most wants to display."
