For more than 25 years, Jean Thompson has been collecting artifacts of the African-American experience. Many of them are now on display at The Enoch Pratt Free Library in an exhibit called "Keeping It Real: One Collector's Quest for Artifacts of African-American Culture and History."
Tom Hall took a tour with Thompson through the exhibit, and she explained how items like dolls, album covers and photos have made an impact on her and in some cases-have led to a greater understanding about African-American history and her own family history.
"Keeping It Real" is up until March 30.
