"You can't just say, 'We're a history museum' and only push the historic aspect, you have to show people how the history impacts people right now, how it impacts the choices they make, and one of the best ways to do that is through the arts." according to a spokesman for the Charles H. Wright Museum for African-American History, Detroit.
