Haitian and African American Connections Project Assistant Internship (July 15, 2022)

The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture. One  of its foundational pillars is to help all Americans see how their stories, their histories, and their  cultures are shaped and informed by global influences. One sphere of global influence is the long established and deeply rooted artistic and cultural intersections between Black Americans and  Haitians. The museum has an interest in developing a project that explores these connections and is  offering an internship in association with the planning of this initiative. Rooted in the models set by  the cultural exchanges and artistic productions that emerged out of the Harlem Renaissance period in  the United States and the indigenism period in Haiti, this initiative will consider where these  connections exist today and the synergies that historically and contemporaneously allow them to  flourish and be sustained. The initiative will draw from a wide cross-section of artistic genres  including music, literature, fashion, art, foodways, museum curation, and more.
