"So like what's the do? They just have French French don't seem to recognize the cheese even there. So maybe she's operating, you know, under deep cover. I think that could be. Nicole Kidman destroyer. Tennis played by Katherine Waterston, who you may know from inherent vice or being Sam Waterston daughter in case, you wanna visual in case, you're friends with the Waterston family. That's where you would from. Yeah. Yeah. Center card congratulated for billion grind line. So she's goes to a what a street fair, some Najat circus circus, and that's worse. That's where credence is working. And he's in love with a woman named the Guinea who's on display because she turns into a snake? Sometimes now, this is like a magic circus. Right. Yeah. Because I was confused while these magicians were amazed by lady turning into a snake because she's a freak because she she has a curse on her where she's much like Cobra commander in the GI Joe movie where they go after cert- with a build surpassing Torre, right or they go to Cobra whatever it is. They she's turning into a snake over time until one day. She'll be Justice snake. Yeah. I mean, I guess humans things that are not amazing. All the time. Like, I went to the Bertha museum the other week, and there's a whole section of it. That's just farm animals, and I'm like can we skip the section and you're like, oh, let's let's go see the farm animals, but I grew up near farms. I don't like why. Oh, the sheep. The sheep are still cute honk shoe been there done that. I like how it's your frame of reference. You're like farm animals are boring. Everyone agrees with that. No. They're not live in a city. I never see animals of any kind except pigeons and rats. What is this thing a pig? A sheep these fantastic beasts where do I find them? And and museum. Dan's like Brooklyn museum, making me look at farm animals. This is a crime worthy of Grindelwald. I guess the moral of the story was that. I did enjoy seeing the firemen. So I guess go to that. Magic circus wizards. They're going to be stuff that you're excited to see. This is important because NEW GUINEA as a snake is a is a big part of the original Harry Potter books because she is one of she is the familiar and one of the hor- cruxes of of volleyball. I didn't know that. Okay. Yes. And I just thought it was a evil snake? But in fact, it's an Asian lady. Yeah. There was there. I think she's Karan. There's Asia, Dan. No. I know, but I was going to be a little more specific. Okay, that's fair. But I think there was like a bit of a controversy about like, oh, like this this this woman like this hor corrects that gets destroyed and this later book turns out, she was like this innocent Kareem lady, and there was like a bit of like a that's a weird choice guys. Like, let's just I mean, I'm an it's it's also weird because like she doesn't. Do anything at all in the movie. No, she doesn't. She barely even helps credence is just there to as basically window-dressing. I mean, she's the reason that credence leaves his job at the circus. I guess, but why did he ever need to have a job at the circus like it, and the the I feel like they're both under served in like a movie that is already too stuffed. They're both under served in that they don't like we don't really get either their motivations other than credence is basic..

"Please. Good morning. I'm big. With. Hey. If you will. My question is America's history, of course, as many ethnic groups that have made contributions is the African American museum experience propelling or making other ethnic groups want to have their own representation in Washington community that is community. To show their contributions to America's history. I think there's always a desire for a variety of communities to make sure their stories are told especially on the National Mall the challenges how to do that. Right. What I think is really important from the work. We've done is to say to to ethnic museums that if you're gonna tell the story of the Japanese Americans, if you're telling a story of Latinos in the southwest what I wanna make sure you do is revelling your ethnicity. But claim your American is as well. And so I think that what I've hoped we've done is modeled that for a variety of institutions. I think that the challenge really is that how do you find the right balance between centralizing story and telling all the component parts, I was at the museum of American history. Fourteen or fifteen years, it's a great institution and one of its great challenges was in a building that size. You couldn't tell all these stories. And so part of what I think is really the challenge for the Smithsonian is to not only open it's doors and open spaces to these different stories, but make sure those stories have a ripple effect in all the museums. So that you begin to see how natural history has been shaped by questions of ethnic and race. Or begin to understand what the air and Space Museum really tells us about technology and its impact on race relations in this country. So for me. The Smithsonian has an opportunity that no place else has the Smithsonian has the opportunity to use each of its different museums as portals into what it means to be an American and therefore you can enter it through the air and Space Museum, whether American art museum or American history museum and said goal is if the Smithsonian will do something there's really revolutionary, which is work. Well with itself. Then it can really be a place that could be transformative for the rest of the country. Lonnie bunch founder of the museum of African American history here in DC and Jason chromatic founder of the bipartisan policy center. We have a couple more questions right here in front, and they'll go to that. I think you Dr bunch of my name is Alexandra token, I'm with the Congressional Black caucus foundation. And we lead a series of exhibits digital exhibits about the CBC stories relates to legislative process in policy making and I was thinking through your conversation about the early days of the museum and thinking about this aspect of persuasion. You spent mentioned earlier about investors and getting the money, but Najan that even the idea quite so much persuasion and motivation and inspiration. And I was wondering if you could speak if they'd about if there was like a sea change, or there was some moments that made it very apparent that this museum must exist. Because in some ways a tremendous achievement can ask the wonder it took a long time to build his house. So we we take us back to that that time where that was critical. I think what was important was to really frame the museum as not. Museum for black people by black people. I think that was really the key. Once we can't with that vision. Then it was a tenth of a lot of people can get under and be part of. But I think if I would argue that there was really a sea change. It was the notion that. When I left Chicago, mayor Daley called me into his office and said, how dare you leave this great city. Why are you going to just one horse company town called Washington? But then he said, why do you want to run a project, and in the mind of people this has been something that had floated around as a project for one hundred years, and I took mayor Daley's advice and said, you know, what it started project? It's a museum that existed from the day we started. So we began to do exhibitions books we Bertha museum online. But the moment the moment that was transformed is when our first exhibition looking at collections that were in the portrait gallery on black portraiture, and we opened it in New York City, and that moment where people came and said to me, this is real we need to care about that members of congress came. So that moment really moved it from an idea that may never happen to a place. That was already up and running. It just didn't have a building. A couple more questions right here in back. And then we'll come on. Okay. More than a couple more questions. We're we're gonna we're gonna be fifty..
