During this special event, alumna Amber Mitchell will discuss how she used B.A. in history from Wayne State to forge a career in museum leadership. As Assistant Director of Public Engagement at the National WWII Museum, Mitchell leads the public programs and community engagement team in creating innovative public programs for a variety of audiences and purposeful relationship building within the Greater New Orleans area. In addition to her bachelor's degree in history from Wayne State, Mitchell has a master’s degree in Public History from Indiana University-­Purdue University, Indianapolis. Mitchell's career reflects her passion for telling the stories of underrepresented peoples in historical institutions, as well as making these institutions more accessible to all people. 

A Q&A and a reception with refreshments will follow the lecture.
