- We wanted to know if the Chat inspired personal conversations, or conversations within museums that addressed police brutality.
- — Adrianne Russell (@adriannerussell)Wed, Feb 18 2015 19:24:51Q2: Have you or your organizations initiated conversations about police brutality and state violence? #museumsrespondtoferguson
- — shaelyn amaio (@heyshaelyn)Wed, Feb 18 2015 19:31:24A2: We talk about historic state violence: slavery, protesters, etc. We draw modern parallels during tours, etc. #museumsrespondtoferguson
- — shaelyn amaio (@heyshaelyn)Wed, Feb 18 2015 19:32:30A2 (cont): But we do not currently have specific programming or materials to address current events. #museumsrespondtoferguson
- — Abby Gautreau (@abbygateau)Wed, Feb 18 2015 19:30:55A2 I think many sites rely on wealthy (white male) donors & have a BoD to contend w/; lots of pushback #museumsrespondtoferguson
- — Abby Gautreau (@abbygateau)Wed, Feb 18 2015 19:32:44A2 Many Boards don't want to "get political" but being silent on these issues & accepting status quo IS political #museumsrespondtoferguson
