For nearly a decade, Lonnie Bunch worked to help conceive, build and launch the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, art, history and culture. A leading scholar in American and African American history, Bunch, in conversation with Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice Director Anthony Bogues, will discuss the experience of building a national museum that examines American history through an African American lens. Room 130, Institute at Brown for Environment and Society, 85 Waterman Street.
