Representing Diaspora & Diverse Blackness in Museology - Revisiting Our Black Mosaic Symposium
Description:
Revisiting Our Black Mosaic Symposium The Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum, in partnership with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, hosted a full day of discussions on race, immigration, gentrification, education, museums, and community in the Washington D.C. metro area on September 19, 2014. Representing Diaspora & Diverse Blackness in Museology: a conversation about the visual representation of Afro, Black, and Diaspora in museums. Audience Q&A follows the presentations. Panelists: Dr. Deborah L. Mack - Associate Director Community & Constituent Services, Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture Dr. Diana Baird N'Diaye - Folklife Curator/ Cultural Specialist, Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage Dr. E. Carmen Ramos - Curator for Latino Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum Moderator: Dr. Michael Atwood Mason Director, Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage BACKGROUND: The program references the museum’s 1994 landmark exhibition Black Mosaic, a multicultural, multilingual exhibition which examined race, nationality, and ethnicity of black immigrants in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area. 20 years have passed since the Black Mosaic exhibition, and in that time both the local and national contexts have changed. Formerly predominately “Black” cities, like Washington, D.C., are changing in demographic composition. Immigration is a hotly debated national issue. Latinos have come to outnumber African-Americans as the largest minority in the United States. Native-born Black populations are declining while African immigrant populations have hit an all-time high. To address these important topics the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum, in partnership with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, hosted a full day of discussions on race, immigration, gentrification, education, museums, and community in the Washington D.C. metro area.
