What can museums do to earn trust in their stated commitment to racial justice? For answers we turn to Kinshasha Holman Conwill, Deputy Director of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. And hear about her childhood home in Atlanta, a hub for civil rights advocates from Julian Bond to Stokely Carmichael. A life spent leading cultural institutions devoted to African American creativity and history. Along the way we’re treated to richly textured anecdotes about her times with Congressman John Lewis, the Rev. C.T. Vivian, and many others, her hopes that younger people will drive social change, displays in the NMAAHC that move her--and concrete advice on how museums can move from stated intentions to true equity and inclusion.
