Again I saw the need to create programs and exhibitions that would promote discourse about these subjects. The course allowed me to formulate my own ideas about museum ethics and start brainstorming ways to effect change in society and make improvements in the museum setting. After searching for an opportunity to make an impact, I received an internship with the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) during the summer of 2014.
