Items from Atlanta-filmed ‘Black Panther’ headed to Smithsonian

Historical artifacts tend to be placed in a museum at some point. Why should Wakandan artifacts be any different?

Objects from the Atlanta-filmed “Black Panther” movie will find a new home at the National Museum of African History and Culture, a Smithsonian Institution museum in Washington, D.C. A costume worn by star Chadwick Boseman, a script signed by director Ryan Coogler and production photos are a few of the items moving to the museum.

The Beatles – a teenage photographer’s shots

Shots of The Beatles’ first US concerts are expected to sell for £250,000 at auction. Mike Mitchell, 18 at the time, snapped hundreds of never-before-seen photographs of the band’s performances at the Washington Coliseum and the Baltimore Civic Centre in 1964. The negatives, taken only with ambient light as Mitchell had no flash, have sat for decades in his basement.
