Biographical / Historical:
Evangeline "EJ" Montgomery (1930- ) is an African American artist, curator, and arts administrator in California and Washington, D.C.

Montgomery was born in New York and moved to Harlem in New York City after the divorce of her parents, Oliver and Carmelite Thompson. Upon graduating from Seward Park High School in 1951, Montgomery worked painting faces on dolls and statues. In 1955, she married Ulysses "Jim" Montgomery and moved to Los Angeles. In California she began working for jewelry designer Thomas Usher while attending Los Angeles City College. She continued her education at California College of the Arts (California College of Arts and Crafts) where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1969. During the late 1960s, Montgomery began curating exhibitions. From 1971 to 1976, she was curator for Rainbow Sign Gallery in Berkeley. Other roles Montgomery held were as the national exhibits workshop coordinator at the American Association for State and Local History and as program development consultant at the African American Museums Association. From 1976 to 1979, she was art commissioner for the city of San Francisco.

Montgomery moved to Washington, D.C. in 1980 to serve as the community affairs director for Howard University's WHMM-TV station. She then began working for the United States Information Agency (USIA) as a program officer in their Arts America program in the early 1980s. In her role, she worked to promote cross-cultural exchanges through art, specializing in American exhibitions touring abroad. Montgomery retired from the USIA in 2008.

As an artist, Montgomery gained recognition for her work in printmaking and metalworking. She was the recipient of the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities fellowship in 2012 and an Excellence in the Arts Award from the Brandywine Print Workshop in 2004. Due to her diagnosis of Parkinson's disease in the 1990s, Montgomery had to stop working with metal but continued her printmaking work.

Place:
Mary McLeod Bethune Council House National Historic Site (Washington, D.C.)
Anacostia (Washington, D.C.)
Date:
1992 May 14
Scope and Contents note:
Edmund Barry Gaither discusses how genuinely pioneering the original Anacostia Neighborhood Museum (now Anacostia Community Museum) was because the community was the empowering agency and subject for the museum. As the first director of the African American Museums Assocation, he describes John Kinard's influence, and how he introduced or helped shape every important issue that organization addressed. He also describes Kinard's relationship with the Smithsonian Institution, and how he tried to give voice to what he felt the Anacostia community wanted. He talks about how the museum's programs and exhibits reflected issues relevant to the Anacostia community, and how the museum has changed over time yet has continued to generate exhibitions that are of national importance.

The interview was recorded on May 13, 1992. The audio quality is faint with some background noise, but the interview can generally be heard clearly throughout the recording.

Exhibitions mentioned: Black women: achievements against the odds, The Rat: Man's Invited Affliction.
Biographical / Historical:
Edmund Barry Gaither (1944-) was born in Great Falls, South Carolina. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Morehouse College, and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Brown University in 1968. In 1969, he became curator of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He founded the National Center of Afro-American Artists in Roxbury, Massachusetts, taught courses in African American studies at Boston University, and lectured about African American art at various colleges, including Spelman College, Massachusetts College of Art, Harvard College, and Wellesley College. He served on the Commission on Museums for a New Century, the American Alliance of Museums, and on President George W. Bush's Advisory Board on Historically Black Colleges and Universities. He was also the first president of the Association of African American Museums.
Provenance:
Conducted as part of the ACM 25th Anniversary Oral History Project, which includes approximately 100 interviews of residents and influential people of the Anacostia area of Washington, DC.

"The greatest obstacle to being heroic is the doubt whether one may not be going to prove one's self a fool; the truest heroism, is to resist the doubt; and the profoundest wisdom, to know when it ought to be resisted, and when to be obeyed."--Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Blithedale Romance, 1852.
