Lonnie Bunch responded ( about Hispanic Caucus ) : “I’ve had opportunities to talk to individuals, not collective groups,” “I’m meeting with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus very soon. What I’m hearing is one, a commitment for people to realize and recognize that the Smithsonian cares about this subject and wants to do even more. And there’s a great deal of interest in…how did we build the African-American Museum, what are the steps and what are the challenges. So what I’m hearing is great excitement, and I think that what I want to make sure is, while we share that excitement, we want to also make sure that we’re doing very concrete things that people can see today that lay a foundation for the future” External link

Lonnie Bunch said : "Oh, I think it's absolutely fair," "There's no doubt in my mind that this is one of the most important moments in 20th century America.

Lonnie Bunch said : "I think in some ways people only know a bit of the Smithsonian," "And one of the bits they don't know as well is how central the research is to who the Smithsonian is, and that the Smithsonian has an amazing array of scientists, spends millions of dollars, in order to make sure that it's doing cutting-edge research in tropical issues like rainforest issues, or cutting-edge research on our own environmental issues. So for me, I hope people understand that the Smithsonian is something that taps so many aspects of our lives, and especially science" External link
