Summary:
Smithsonian Secretary Robert McCormick Adams creates a Smithsonian Cultural Education Committee to promote diversity across all aspects of the Smithsonian. The committee consists of 12 to 18 members from outside the Smithsonian and focuses its activities for the next decade on educational programs, diversity at all levels of the Institution, monitoring and accountability of diversity efforts, sensitivity to cultural pluralism in exhibit programs, and public outreach. It is initially chaired by Jeannine Smith Clark, a member of the Smithsonian Board of Regents (the only female, African-American on the Board, at that time).
