African-American history goes far beyond Black History Month in February. Today we talked about the presentation of history and how it’s changing and confronting new layers of truth. Recently, several museums and African-American exhibits have been built around the country.On Second Thought host Virginia Prescott speaks with Amanda Hollowell and Nicole Miller.
