In this presentation, cultural worker, art historian, and curator La Tanya Autry examines how race and memory operate through representations, institutions, and place as understood through the theoretical constructs of Black feminism and distributed via social media. In 2015, she started the Social Justice and Museums Resource List, an ongoing collaborative document that features critical resources for the work of decolonizing museums, and co-founded the Museums Art Not Neutral campaign in 2017 to publicly counter the notion that museums are inherently apolitical.  In this lecture, Ms. Autry presents a vision of museums as places of possibility for all visitors through antiracist and decolonizing activism from scholars, museum workers, and the cultural sector.
