Interpreting African American Foodways: Guest post

| August 29, 2012

Cross posting today from this entry at Afroculinaria. Thank you Michael Twitty for allowing me to cross post and thanks to Harold Caldwell for this amazing and wonderful piece.    One of the things I miss most about working at Brattonsville is the hearth cooking.  I enjoyed just having ingredients and a meal idea put […]

Reflections from City Point

| May 3, 2012

I am a timid person by nature–I like to play the background and do careful, thought provoking and amazing work while back there. However I realize with a business model, this doesn’t serve well, so I work these jitters and moments of slight fear and shyness out before I come face to face with a […]

Musings and updates

| April 17, 2012

Ahh, so this week is the joint meeting with NCPH and OAH that I was supposed to attend. Due to financial constraints, I was not able to make it and I’m completely bummed out about that. I was looking forward to the session on Sunday that is chaired by Robert Weyeneth of the University of […]

Panels and Plantations

| March 1, 2012

Continuing my week of adventures and presentations, I had the honor of being a panelist at St. Mary’s College of Maryland last night. The panel discussion was about diversity in museums, and how we can diversify our visitors, not only racially, but socioeconomically, as well as in age range. Most visitors to museums are older, […]

AAG Recap

Over the past two days, I have presented, attended and been a panelist in 3 sessions at the Association of American Geographer’s Annual Meeting in New York City. Always a fun place to be, I didn’t spend a lot of time exploring the city, although my accommodations at the Salisbury Hotel on W. 57th Street […]

Speed Networking

| April 14, 2011

I have never gone to a networking event. Most of my networking has come from sending out emails or talking at events. But at NCPH 2011, there was a speed networking event. I would sit at a table with another network participant and a public history professional and we would talk for about 10 minutes […]

I am a member of the National Council on Public History and finally got to go to an annual meeting, this one held in Pensacola, Florida.
