The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture 21 MIN, 59 SEC

A hundred years after the idea was first floated, the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture will open its doors. The museum houses over 17,000 artifacts, each telling a story about the African-American experience. From the horror of a child's shackles to the drama of its architecture, we hear reactions to the building from a journalist, a critic and two of its architects.

YIMBY movement 14 MIN, 22 SEC

We've all heard of NIMBYs: people who oppose growth because they don't want their neighborhoods to change. Now, there's a counter-movement forming of people who say the only way to solve the housing crisis in expensive cities is to keep building. They call themselves YIMBYs and held their first conference this June. DnA chats with some YIMBYs -- and even meets a MIMBY!
