IDEAA Subcommittee Meeting
July 27, 2022 @ 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm
All BLS members are invited to attend the July 27, 2022, Zoom meeting of the IDEAA Subcommittee at 3:30 pm. James Hadden, a director of the Museum of Us, will talk about the institutional change the Museum undertook in view of diversity and inclusion principles. The Museum of Us, known for decades as the San Diego Museum of Man, is an institution with deep colonial roots. It is housed in a monumental structure that quite literally pays homage to the colonial past of California. Over ten years ago, the Museum began a journey of decolonizing and antiracism work, but its outward identity didn’t match this change. This presentation will examine the journey of the Museum as it built an outward identity to match its mission-driven work.
