Coming up on today's show:

  • On Saturday, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture will open after a decades-long fight and countless economic and political hurdles. Gayle Jessup White, community engagement officer at the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, and Don Felder, cousin to the late tennis player Althea Gibson, reflect on this historic moment. 
  • Yahoo announced on Thursday that account information from 500 million users was stolen by hackers in 2014. Data exposed includes names, emails, phone numbers, birth dates, and in some cases security questions. The moves comes as Verizon is in the process of acquiring Yahoo for $4.8 billion. Chris Calabrese, vice president for policy at the Center for Democracy and Technology, has the details.
  • As Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt call it quits, Melissa Locker — culture reporter for TIME, The Guardian, and The Takeaway — brings us the best break up movies to watch at home, and Rafer Guzman, film critic for Newsday, reviews the new release hitting the box office this weekend, including "The Magnificent Seven" and "Storks."
  • This week, more than 20 governments formally signed on to the Paris climate accord at the U.N. General Assembly. But a group of mayors are pushing to refocus how we tackle climate change. Javier Gonzales, mayor of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Christian Bollwage, mayor of Elizabeth, New Jersey, explain.
