Trayvon Martin’s Hoodie to be Exhibited??

Trayvon Martin’s Hoodie to be Exhibited??

According to ABC News:

The director of a new branch of the Smithsonian, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, told the Washington Post he would like the museum to acquire the piece of history for its permanent collection.

“It became the symbolic way to talk about the Trayvon Martin case,” Lonnie Bunch told the Post. “It’s rare that you get one artifact that really becomes the symbol.

“Because it’s such a symbol, it would allow you to talk about race in the age of Obama.”

Neither Bunch nor the museum returned calls from ABC News for comments.

The National Museum of African American History and Culture is set to open in 2015 in Washington.

This action has its pros and cons. To place Trayvon Martin’s hoodie in the Smithsonian would keep a sense of his memory alive as well as the lesson and moral that we’ve learned from the tragic event. However what about the family, are they ready to display a crucial event in their life forever? Thoughts?
