Nation's new African-American museum opens on National Mall

| It was a historic day in Washington - the grand opening of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture. Congressman John Lewis, a veteran of the civil rights struggles, said, "This place is more than a building - it's a dream come true." The $540 million museum took more than four years to build. It sits near the Washington Monument. Marlie Hall reports.
