What is a Museum? An Exploration in Six Parts
PART 3: THE WHITENESS OF MUSEUMS
Tuesday February 16, 2021
12pm EST
 
Museums are undergoing an effort to acknowledge and recognize with concern the legacies and continuous presence of deep societal inequalities and asymmetries of power and wealth across the globe, nationally, regionally and locally.
