This photo taken June 2, 2013 shows the under-construction Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, Oprah Winfrey is giving $12 million to a museum being built on the National Mall that will document African-American life. The National Museum of African American History and Culture said the museum’s 350-seat theater will be named after Winfrey. When it’s finished in 2015, the museum will house artifacts including Harriet Tubman’s shawl, Emmett Till’s casket and a Jim Crow-era segregated railroad car. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon)
