Ontmoeting met Lonnie Bunch, director van The Smithsonian

Tijdens The Four Freedom Awards werd in the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library te Hydepark ons boek ‘Zeeuws Meisje #gelijkheid ‘overhandigd aan meneer Lonnie Bunch. Een indrukwekkend mens en terecht dat hij de ‘Freedom Medal’ mocht ontvangen. ‘Lonnie Bunch has dedicated his life to telling a fuller and more complex historical narrative as he illuminates forgotten stories and elevates powerful messages. Bunch is the first African American to lead the Smithsonian Institution, where he oversees 19 museums, 21 libraries, the National Zoo, research centers and educational centers. Previously, Bunch was the founding director of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Amreican History and Culture. He served as president of the Chicago Historical Society and associate director of curatorial affairs at the National Museum of American History. Lonnie Bunch first began at the Simithsonian in 1978 as an educational specialist at the National Air and Space Museum.’ #trots #zeeland #zeeuwsmeisje #gelijkheid
