Anacostia (Washington, D.C.)
In 1999-2000 the Anacostia Community Museum renovated its facility to focus on the collection, storage and study of artifacts. The on-line academy is presented as part of the museum's reemphasis of our commitment to collections development and to the study of African American material culture. The Academy features a series of people offering their expertise and sharing their insights on different subjects within the field of material culture. Collectors, preservers, scholars, and educators conduct virtual lectures, workshops, and demonstrations for your enjoyment and education.
This collection contains the video interviews conducted with collectors, scholars, and and other specialists as part of the Anacostia Community Museum's On-Line Academy. The On-line Academy was presented to demonstrate the Museum's commitment to collections development, storage, and preservation, and it encourages patrons to use the information presented along with the database of artifacts in the museum's permanent collection to think about what role material culture plays in helping us to come to a better understanding of the African American historical and cultural experience.
