Seriously. [Smithsonian director wants Trayvon Martin’s hoodie, Washington Times, July 31, 2013]:
Trayvon Martin’s hoodie became a nationwide symbol following his fatal shooting, and now the director of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History wants the original.
Trayvon Martin's hoodie "belongs in a museum"
The museum’s director, Lonnie Bunch, said Mr. Martin’s hoodie, the one he was wearing the night of his death on Feb. 26, 2012, represents a unique opportunity to further the discussion about race in America, The Washington Post reported.
“It became the symbolic way to talk the Trayvon Martin case. It’s rare that you get one artifact that really becomes the symbol,” he said. “Because it’s such a symbol, it would allow you to talk about race in the age of Obama.”
Mr. Bunch said he would be very interested in obtaining the hoodie for his collection after the Justice Department finishes its civil rights investigation. He also has his eye on the hoodie that Marian Wright Edelman, founder of the Children’s Defense Fund, wore in solidarity with protesters, The Post reported.
The National Museum of African American History and Culture is set to open in 2015 and will display objects related to the Civil Rights Movement, such as the handcuffs used to restrain Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.What was it Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones said of precious antiquities in the Indiana Jones movies, when some unscrupulous financier would seek idols for their private collection?
Oh yes: "It belongs in a museum."
