The Assocation of African American Museums is pleased to announce the #AAAMMuseumSpotlight. This series will highlight AAAM institutional members who are pillars in their communities and are doing great work throughout the field. Throughout the year we will spotlight leaders, visionaries, and institutions that have been pivotal in the growth of our institutions and the museum professionals in the African American museum culture.

Today we highlight the Smithsonian's Anacostia Community Museum

“Men of Change: Taking it to the Streets is a great example of how museums can reach into their communities and create opportunities for shared programs and exhibits. The Anacostia Community Museum’s work on Men of Change would not have been possible without our partners who welcomed us into their community allowed us to work together to create a meaningful experience,” says Melanie A. Adams, Director of the Anacostia Community Museum.

As the month of March comes to a close, we would like to take this time to highlight one of our AAAM | EMP members, Jacqueline Hudson.

Jacqueline Hudson was recently named the recipient of the 2021 National Council on Public History Travel Award. She will receive a certificate and a cash prize. 🤑💰💸

These travel awards assist individuals who are new to the field and practice of public history in attending the NCPH annual meeting, helping them become more connected with other members of the profession early in their careers.

Jacqueline Hudson is a current PhD candidate at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) who currently works at the BGSU Ray Browne Popular Culture Library and was recently a consultant for the National Museum of African American Music from June 2020 to December 2020. In receiving this award, Hudson intends to build relationships with other public historians and learn new perspectives to help her in her mission to promote community engagement, particularly in communities of color. Taking the theme of our conference, "The Presence and Persistence of Stories," to heart, Hudson looks forward to finding "innovative ways to tell under-told stories of the past from underrepresented communities to future generations."

Congrats Jacqueline! 🥳🎉

AAAM GOES VIRTUAL FOR 43rd ANNUAL CONFERENCE!! 🙌🏽

The Association of African American Museums (AAAM) announced to members and supporters plans to move the annual conference to a virtual platform for a second year.

“Last year’s successful launch of the first virtual conference proved that despite our distance, we can still learn, grow, and network together virtually. Historically the AAAM conference is a family reunion of sorts for professionals of African and African American focused museums as well as a wide array of cultural institutions. Last year, we gathered and connected virtually and we all were safe, protected and healthy. We want to have that same outcome this year.” said Vedet Coleman-Robinson, Executive Director.

The #AAAM2021 Call For Proposals Deadline is March 13, 2021.

Hey there! I am coordinating an upcoming event series with New England Museum Association about museums doing great work in the LGBTQ+ space What museums are doing great work celebrating LGBTQ+ folx of color? Or do you look up to a museum professional doing great work in an intersectional LGBTQ+ space? Are you a q***r professional with a story to share? The events will be May 19 and June 2 at 4pm EST. If you have an idea for speakers, please send them my way at [email protected].
Invitation to participate in study on COVID-19, social inclusion and representation --> please like/comment/email if interested in participating. I am a doctoral student in Northwestern University's Sociology Department currently studying curators/curatorial practice in US museums. My project is interested in how museum professionals are navigating issues contemporary social issues, including COVID-19, racial justice, and imperatives for social inclusion. If you might be interested in talking to me about these issues at your institution, please like/comment on this post or email me at [email protected] and I would follow up. Your participation will be appreciated, and I would be honored to speak to any and all of you about how you are navigating the place of museums in society.

Hey folks! The beginning of a webinar series presented by the NC African American Heritage Commission, join us! https://fb.me/e/4pENGbd9o
Are you a current or former museum and gallery professional working in the UK or internationally? We are inviting colleagues in the sector to complete a survey that aims to explore the perspectives and experiences of current and former museum and gallery professionals in relation to graduate employability in the sector. Our survey can be accessed athttps://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdekeCXoKtluvSF-r1Y_JXOKTMVaTZ36UB8PKlpjhWyGI3QwQ/viewform?fbclid=IwAR1W06ef75wSJOYfaerBYCX-hKo916dTs-nrXQ-7Xq7DS2FfS6cnNGDlQqg here (closing date: 18th of June). We would appreciate if you could take the time to complete our survey and circulate it amongst your colleagues. This survey is part of the project Curating Expertise: Towards a Museum Forum @ King’s, with which we aim to build an interdisciplinary Museum Studies teaching and research agenda at King’s College London. We are interested in colleagues’ thoughts about the knowledges, skills and experience that museum studies graduates should possess to be employable in the sector today. We are particularly keen to hear from those interested in contributing, in one form or another, to the delivery of a London-based but globally focused new Museum Studies teaching provision. Whilst we are interested in collaborating with London-based institutions / professionals, we would be delighted to also hear from colleagues across the UK and internationally. Whilst we appreciate this is a time of uncertainty for the sector, it seems a critical moment to reflect on how we can train future generations of resilient museum professionals. If you wish to get in touch, you can reach us at [email protected] and [email protected]. Best wishes, Dr Stuart Dunn (DDH) and Dr Serena Iervolino (CMCI)
How can people support your work and participate?
