In a thought-provoking exchange, Museum President Sean Decatur and Leslie Harris, professor of history and African American studies at Northwestern University, delve into the colonial legacies of cultural institutions, including the American Museum of Natural History, and discuss forward-looking strategies for addressing and redressing troubling legacies as a necessary step in advancing a mission of research and education today. The conversation will focus on the ethical considerations surrounding the curation and display of exhibits, emphasizing the importance of respecting diverse cultural perspectives and fostering a more inclusive narrative in exhibitions and civic spaces.
