As a part of her series, These Museum Streets, curator, educator, and activist Dr. Kelli Morgan will be in conversation with Williams students about what it means to be an emerging scholar and curator as museums are being called to reflect on how they are flawed. Dr. Kelli Morgan is a curator, educator, and social justice activist who specializes in American art and visual culture, her scholarly commitment to the investigation of anti-blackness within those fields demonstrates how traditional art history and museum practice work specifically to uphold white supremacy. Besides her own curatorial experience, she is the Director of Curatorial Studies at Tufts University where she mentors students, emerging curators, and regularly trains staff from various museums how to foster anti-racist approaches in collection building, exhibitions, community engagement, and fundraising.
