This undated handout photo provided by the Smithsonian shows Nat Turner's bible, part of an exhibit "Changing America," beginning Friday at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, presenting a walk back in time through two different eras. A new exhibit, "Changing America," parallels the 1863 emancipation of slaves with the 1963 March on Washington. It is thought that Nat Turner was holding this Bible when he was captured two months after the rebellion he led against slaveholders in Southampton County, Virginia. Turner worked both as an enslaved field hand and as a minister. A man of remarkable intellect, he was widely respected by black and white people in Southampton County, Virginia. He used his talents as a speaker and his mobility as a preacher to organize the slave revolt. (AP Photo/Michael Barnes, Smithsonian)
