Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
Three days and counting, until Timothy McVeigh is put to death for the Oklahoma City bombing.
He'll die by lethal injection Monday morning at the federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana.
McVeigh made the decision to end efforts to save his life after a federal appeals court turned down his request for a stay of execution.
Meanwhile, he could be moved today from his cell at a federal prison to the execution building.

(NARR: vo; beauty shots of mall)


Out of all the museums that line the Mall in Washington D.C. -- there is one NO TOURIST can visit: The National Black History Museum. It doesn't exist.

(vo: Lee & Lewis walking)


An empty space on the nation's front lawn, Congressman John Lewis has been trying to fill.

(DISSOLVE TO SOT/REP. JOHN LEWIS, D-GA 10:41:14)

"We cannot sweep it under the American rug, or hide it in some corner.(edit//10:42:26) We have to deal with it, we have to confront it, we have to face our own history."

(NARR: vo Lewis & Lee -- dissolve to footage of Selma/Birmingham

riots/slavery shots)
For 13 years he's heard all the excuses -- from not enough money, to not enough interest.
But THIS YEAR instead of excuses, he's found bi partisan backers, who agree a nation's MISTAKES should be remembered next to its TRIUMPHS.

(SOT/SEN. SAM BROWNBACK, R-KS 13:22:20)

"It was US government POLICY that slavery was allowed in America. It was US government POLICY or state POLICIES that we had segregation in America.(edit 13:27:37) You gotta face your past to build your future, and this is a case where we need to do that as well."

(NARR:)


That future could begin here -- at the Smithsonian's Arts and Industries Building -- a location Congress has to approve -- and private donations would have to fund.

(COWAN ON CAM:11:09:18)

"But it's not just money the founders are looking for, it's collectibles as well. In the absence of a NATIONAL Black History Museum -- many African-American artifacts have fallen into private hands -- preserved perhaps, but not for show."

(NAT/SOT MARK WITH SLAVE TAG 13:37:50)

"This is an actual tag worn by a slave in 1846."

(NARR: vo Mark & I, wanted poster, King letter)


Take historian Mark Mitchell. From posters of runaway slaves -- to a letter written in jail by Dr. Martin Luther King -- his collection is museum quality -- still in search of a museum wall.

(SOT/MARK MITCHELL, COLLECTOR 11:30:35)

"I feel we're losing history, I feel we're leaking history, and we're not paying enough attention."

(NARR: vo: Douglass book, Mark and Frederick together in living room)
Catalogued in his basement are countless letters and photos ---
newspapers, even books, --- including this: a rare copy of the first

autobiography of abolitionist Frederick Douglass.

His great great grandson is relieved it still exists -- an artifact that speaks of the past, that needs a place to be heard.

(SOT/FREDERICK DOUGLASS IV, GREAT-GREAT GRANDSON 12:09:13)

"If everyone can see the full experience and put into perspective what African Americans have done..(edit//12:10:38) "then we can really start to understand each other."
