NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- In the wake of last year’s protests and the racial reckoning in America, many people turned to places like the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem and the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. to learn about the history and culture of African Americans.

Kevin Young, former director at the Schomburg Center and newly-installed director at the National Museum, sat down with 1010 WINS anchor Larry Mullins to discuss how these institutions have provided historical perspective and present day context for what we are witnessing today.
