Zora Martin-Felton explains the difference between a news article and a feature article, and how to develop a public relations packet. Workshop participants work together to create a public relations packet for an exhibition on George Washington Carver. John Kinard talks about George Washington Carver, making something out of nothing, and the under representation of African Americans in museum exhibits.
