According to Dr. Vedet Coleman-Robinson, the executive director of AAAM, who is also a Howard University alumna, “The partnership between Howard University’s School of Business and the Association of African American Museums is the first of its kind, and we are honored to be able to provide executive training to Black museum professionals through one of the world’s premier HBCUs. We have a long-standing informal relationship with Howard, as many of the professionals in our field have earned degrees from the University. We’ve continued the talent-to-the-museum-and-cultural sector pipeline through these informal relationships, and I cannot think of a better way to strengthen our ties than through this more formal and ground-breaking partnership.”  READ THE FULL PRESS RELEASE HERE.
