Since posting the Joint Statement from Museum Bloggers & Colleagues on Ferguson & Related Events, so many threads of amazing conversations have occurred. For me, the discussions have been thought-provoking, challenging, and restorative. So let’s keep it going, shall we?
Save the Date: Dec. 17, 2014, 1-2 PM (CST) for a twitter chat hosted by me and Aleia Brown on social justice, advocacy, and the museum field’s responses to the issues of racism, injustice, and unchecked police brutality. Follow and join the conversation using the tag #museumsrespondtoferguson.
