Heritage Salon has been one of my passions since its inception in 2009. After months of major changes, late nights and confusion of what to do next, I knew Heritage Salon had to move to another level. I began to ponder the reason why I started this journey. I quickly remembered that I wanted to help with the diversity of museums with a focus on African American museums. Just as anything in life, in order to change you must grow. Heritage Salon has been a nonprofit organization since 2012 with only a publication as the main component.
Now, Heritage Salon is not only an online magazine, it has evolved to have programs. The magazine will exclusively be online and with new and improved features. We now have Museum Professionals Speak – where museum professionals share their experience, News and Views – where news and opinions are shared and we continue our tradition of Heritage Salon Spotlights – that highlights museums, cultural institutions and historic homes and sites. We have developed programs that align with our mission in eradicating the lack of diversity in the museum field. I encourage you to go and learn about the new programs that include a podcast/radio show – HS Talks, a lecture series for college and university students – HS Speaker Series and a series of presentations, site visits and first-hand experience to K-12 students to introduce museums – HS Museum Prelude.
I hope you enjoy this new “Promenade through the African American Museum Culture.”
With Museum Love,
Welcome to Heritage Salon!
