More re Tutankhamun protest (
More coverage on the recent protest re the Tutankhamun exhibition: "Molefi Asante, professor of African-American studies at Temple University, led a protest yesterday in front of the Franklin Institute claiming the museum's exhibit on King Tutankhamun is racist.
'This is a crime scene,' he shouted. 'This is an area of criminal theft, identity theft.'
Among the grievances shared by members of the Association of Kemetic Nubian Heritage, of which Asante is president, is that the exhibit has no mention of Africa and that information within suggests that King Tut, an African, was white."
