Unemployed District residents protested Wednesday outside the construction site for the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture.

People say Clark Construction and the Smithsonian did not hire enough of D.C.'s unemployed African Americans to build the museum.

Protesters say more than 120 job seekers from D.C. applied for jobs, and none were hired.

Construction on the museum is expected to be completed in 2015.
