Museums in the Wake of Community Conflict

Melanie Adams
Just a few weeks after the Association of Midwest Museums wrapped up their conference in St. Louis, a young unarmed African American man was killed by a white police officer. In the weeks that followed, a national movement developed to protest not only this one senseless death, but the ongoing injustices that serve as the foundation for many of the country's institutions. From the jailhouse to the schoolhouse, people of color have often been systematically discriminated against and excluded from the decision-making process. The most recent uprising in Ferguson, Missouri, exemplifies what happens when a community's voice is lost within an unjust system.
