SECOND HANGMAN’S NOOSE LEFT IN AFRICAN-AMERICAN MUSEUM AT SMITHSONIAN: Tourists found a noose Wednesday on the floor of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the second left at a Smithsonian site in less than a week, officials said. The gallery containing an exhibit on segregation was closed for about three hours while U.S. Park Police investigated the incident in the nation’s capital, Smithsonian officials said. “The noose has long represented a deplorable act of cowardice and depravity — a symbol of extreme violence for African Americans, …” Bunch said. “This was a horrible act, but a stark reminder of why our work is so important.” Another noose had been found Friday on the grounds of the Hirshhorn Museum, which features contemporary art and culture.
