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.
