ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- [Narrator] Amid increased calls for social justice--

- You have to bring diverse voices to the table.

- [Narrator] The MET looks inward.

- [Art Curator] It's a time of reflecting.

What is really important for us?

- These objects were stolen.

They were never intended to be in a space like the MET.

- The history taught to my children has been that of slavery

and there's more before that.

There is more.

- The museum has had to retreat

and now it wants to come back with what phase.

(classical music)
