Finally, we have another episode of #MuseumStory. It was long overdue.

In this episode, I interview Gwen Moore from the Missouri History Museum. We get to hear about how this Museum has decided to respond to the events that sparked a nationwide conversation.

What should Museums do when unfortunate events (like the ones in Ferguson or Charleston) happen within their backyard?

What role do Museums play when issues of racism are being discussed?

These are only a couple of the questions I asked the Missouri History Museum.

Side Note: This interview took place back in April 2015. Lots of things have happened since then but the information is still relevant!
