A Personal Note from RAM Executive Director/Curator Carrie Johnson

I write to you today with a heavy heart. As a museum staff and board, we want to acknowledge the pain, struggle and continued fight the black community faces daily.

We understand the incredible effort it takes to fight against systemic racism, both in our institution and our city, and we are dedicated to this hard work.
