Charles H. Wright Museum could be lost in bankruptcy

A painting currently on exhibit at Charles H. Wright.

As Detroit's bankruptcy story has unfolded, a great deal of attention has been focused on the Detroit Institute of Arts and its struggle to keep pieces of its collection safe from being sold to satisfy Detroit's creditors.

The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History is the largest museum in the nation devoted to African American history.

Listen to the full interview above.
