In September, 2016 I wrote a blog post about the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. The Museum's director, Lonnie Bunch and, deputy director, Kinshasha Holman Conwill discussed the Grand Opening preparations in a Washington Post article entitled Painful but Crucial:  Why You'll see Emmett Till's Casket at the African American Museum, by Krissah Thompson (8/18/16). One of the most sacred items in the collection of over 3,000 objects in the inaugural exhibition, according to Ms. Conwill, was the exhumed casket of Emmett Louis Till (July 25, 1941-August 28, 1955), who was 14 years old when he was lynched in Mississippi.


    
After a District Court Judge denied a request to stop the construction of the Dakota Access oil pipeline, the Department of Justice, the Department of the Army, and the Department of the Interior issued a joint statement declaring that they would stop the construction of the pipeline on Army Corps land. The construction will be halted until the Army determines if it needs to reconsider its decisions about the Lake Oahe site and it holds government-to-government consultations with the tribes. The statement went on to state support for "the right of all Americans to assemble and speak freely."
