Washington D.C. Part 2

Here are more photos from my day in Washington, D.C. For a girl that wants to work in a museum one day, I was seriously in heaven.

Hope for America jukebox
Above is a screen shot of a jukebox from the Library of Congress politics and pop culture exhibit that played songs about political or social issues.  I listened to snippets of a lot of my favorites from the 1960s and 1970s, but played this entire song in honor of my mom, who introduced me to Aretha when I was just a young little thing.
