    This year’s Marion Thompson Wright (MTW) Lecture Series entitled Curating Black America, will use the imminent grand opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) in Washington, D.C., to invite a wide-ranging discussion of the ways we remember the black experience and present it to a diverse global audience, especially as the newest resident of the National Mall readies to spotlight such issues for the world. The 35th annual MTW conference will be presented Saturday, February 21, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Paul Robeson Campus Center at Rutgers University-Newark, in memory of Institute director, Dr. Clement Price, who co-founded the series in 1981 with the late Giles R. Wright.
