#Museumsrespondtoferguson 2

For this chat we directed our focus inward, asking colleagues to dissect how museums' internal views on race affect visitors, and outreach initiatives.

  1. We asked about anti-blackness and racial inequity. Most pointed to lack of black people in leadership positions as problematic.
  2. We asked if museums had a responsibility to recruit professionals of color for leadership positions.
  3. We considered that few people want to engage dialogue on race. We asked how we can initiate and sustain these conversations.
  4. Some participants made insightful observations about #museumsrespondtoferguson and #MuseumSelfie- two Twitter hashtags occurring simultaneously.
  5. Some participants encouraged colleagues to learn from people outside museums.
