Museums Today: Lessons in Equity from Culturaly Responsive Museums

Stefanie A. Johnson-Cunningham, Creative Director of Museum Hue

Wednesday, November 18th

6pm EDT

 

In this discussion, Stephanie Johnson-Cunningham will shed light on her work through Museum Hue and share the ways she and other museum professionals are boldly responding to current issues relating to race through narratives, programs, exhibitions and services. She will also address the critical ways museums can help shape, define and preserve today for the future. As the United States reckons with a legacy of structural racism, oppression, and discriminatory policies and practices; Stephanie centers cultural equity as an essential part of achieving social justice.
