Stained-Glass from Church Donated to Smithsonian

Randall Jimerson and his siblings donated a piece of stained glass and metal shard from the church bombing to the National Museum of African American History and Culture on Sept. 11. Their father Norman “Jim” Jimerson was a white minister who worked on racial issues and collected the glass piece as symbol to remember the tragedy.
