Judge Robert Wilkins talked about his book, Long Road to Hard Truth: The 100 Year Mission to Create the National Museum of African American History and Culture. He talked about the early effort to create a memorial for African American Civil War soldiers, and how that evolved into the movement to create a national museum. He described his own involvement in advocating for the museum, after the first attempt by Representative John Lewis (D-GA) failed in 1993. close
