What happened to the US National Slavery Museum?
In 1993, Virginia Governor Douglas Wilder returned from a trip to Africa with plans to to create a museum dedicated to slavery. In a flurry of early activity, he recruited high-profile entertainers and historians for the museum's board, collected thousands of artifacts, and set out to raise $200 million dollars. But over the past five years, Governor Wilder has been silent on the subject, and this past fall, the museum organization filed for bankruptcy. We try to find out whether the US Museum of Slavery will ever be a reality.
