The Catalysts for Change Speaker Series features best-selling authors, celebrated personalities, civil and human rights leaders, educators, and opinion leaders who are critically acclaimed for their perspectives on issues of race, access to opportunity, equity, and social justice. Our goal is to enlighten participants on the historic struggle for civil and human rights and inspire personal social action to combat today’s injustices.
The 2023 Catalyst for Change series will include sessions aligned with the Museum’s strategic pillars of economic empowerment, education, arts, and culture.
