When people hear the word museum, a number of different images come to mind, most of them being associated with cold detached institutions for only those of priviledge. Makeba Dixon-Hill is working to change that and replace them with more modernized notions. Serving as the Curator of Education at Spelman Museum has given her a lane to do just that. Check out some of the programming she currently facilitates:
Through Her Lens: A series of programs that partner with women and girls to explore topics of creativity, teamwork, self-care, and self-esteem;
Yoga in the Museum: A weekly free all levels yoga class, led by certified yogis of color in the museum.
Black Box: A presentation of in-progress works that focuses on the art and culture of the African Diaspora
