CBS News' Chip Reid talks with the museum's interim director Dr. Spencer Crew as well as its founding director Lonnie Bunch, now head of the Smithsonian Institution, about Lewis' decades-long fight to make the museum a reality. They explain Lewis' instrumental role in the museum's creation and why he felt that learning our history was so important to ensure America lives up to its ideals.
