February 12th 2016: Museums and Race 2016: Transformation and Justice

Recently, a group of thirty multi-racial and multi-generational museum professionals met in Chicago for a three-day conversation about museums and race, specifically to intensify the focus on entrenched racism in American museums, examine practices, and launch an action group to initiate change in racist values and policies across the museum field. The convening was sponsored by The Museum Group, a consortium of independent museum consultants that believe in the power of deep listening and dialogue to spur change. Several participants will share their thoughts.
