Curatorial & Collections Intern, Dora Nelson

This is a family-operated museum. Last year, I assisted with the redevelopment of the museum from its previously neglected state to operational, in conjunction with it hosting the 2016 Association of African American Museums conference. During my time as intern, I helped develop a collections management policy, plan exhibitions, catalog and accession the current collection, and conduct oral histories. I also took part in meetings between the museum and the conference planners, and hosted the Black History Month event at the local library.
