Good morning!!

Three men are charged with stealing from cars in Germantown. We'll tell you what investigators say they were after, and the reason they were able to hit so many vehicles.

Chopper 5 captured a fire burning at Rock 103, Hallelujah FM, WDIA and other offices in Memphis. We'll explain how bad the damage is and what investigators are saying about it.

We're getting our first look inside the new museum of African-American History. Journalists including our own Kontji Anthony got a sneak peak at the museum in Washington, D.C. It features six floors of history, spanning from the slave trade through abolitionism to the civil rights movement and modern black culture. We have video this morning.
