Museums and Race

April 30 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The recent national conversation about race has included voting, prisons, and policing. Add to that list museums, which have begun to contend with histories of racism—in society and in their own institutions—including reflections in the very collections they’ve acquired or manage. Join David Pilgrim of the Jim Crow Museum, Carlos Tortolero of the National Museum of Mexican Art, and Chip Colwell of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and the author of Plundered Skulls and Stolen Spirits, for a conversation about changing curatorial practices and efforts at community engagement.

Preorder your copy of Plundered Skulls and Stolen Spirits through the CHF box office and save 20%.

A book signing will follow this program.
