Clayton Library Friends General Meeting February 2023
This general meeting will be held via Zoom online meeting. A brief business meeting will be followed by our guest speaker.
Program Title: The History and Legacy of the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum
The Center for African American Military History also known as the Buffalo Soldiers Museum, founded by Captain Paul Matthews, opened its doors to the public in 2001 to tell the story of African Americans who have served proudly in the military from the Civil War to the present day. In this presentation, Dr. Michelle Tovar will share the history and legacy of the Buffalo Soldiers Museum and how the museum is creating new paths for learning, interpretation, and acknowledgment of history often omitted from history books.
Dr. Michelle Tovar is the Director of Education at the Center for African American Military History. In this role, she is responsible for developing, implementing, and evaluating museum education programs for diverse audiences and expanding the museum's engagement with the public, educators, and students. Dr. Tovar's goal is to build genuine partnerships with local and national organizations dedicated to education, social justice, and history. She is an advocate for BIPOC representation in formal and informal learning environments. Previously, Dr. Tovar founded the Latino Initiatives at Holocaust Museum Houston in 2015 as the Associate Director of Education-Latino Initiatives and created inclusive programming as the Director of Public Engagement. She is a Smithsonian Latino Museum Studies alum, a Fulbright-Hays scholar, and serves as a Houston Coalition Against Hate board member. In 2020, Dr. Tovar was awarded the American Alliance of Museums Ed Com Award for Excellence in Practice.
