Reading Stephanie Camp’s Closer to Freedom for the 4th time and it gets me every. single. time. Rosie loves it too. https://t.co/LduI9n1Hr9

Exactly. Having been front-of-house in past but now more back-of-house, easy for me to be excited about our interp plan explicitly discussing political, racist, anti-democratic violence. FOH staff excited but said, rightfully, we need tools. #AASLH2020 #SilverBulletOrKryptonite https://t.co/cO5jYp05qY

This this this!!! https://t.co/fzkw6GJL83

Quoted @kawulf

Being a historian means you have a pretty clear view of the terrible things humans are capable of doing. Being human means you still hope.

When asked why she remained in her seat on a segregated bus, Claudette Colvin talked about Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth—women she had learned about in school. Who will Colvin's story inspire?

Reopening our museums gradually is a delicate process and I'm proud of the thoughtful approach of our staff members and the enthusiasm of our volunteers, who assist visitors virtually. Whether you join us in person or online, we welcome you and are grateful for your support. https://t.co/OBfre6uXzB https://t.co/fhy9idsQDT

One of the few good things to come from the pandemic is how learning better use of technology. As @amhistorymuseum reopens Friday we'll utilize remote visitor assistants - @SmithsonianSec is here interacting with Dr. Jocelyn Knauf who has led our efforts on this. @smithsonian https://t.co/5C0UMnOwhN

Thinking deeply about the amount of work it takes frontline staff to reopen museums and giving a s/o to my fellow frontline, education, security, facilities, social media, and comms staff who have worked hard, thoughtfully and thoroughly, during this time.

Really leaning into this thesis thing. Also losing my mind. But it’s fun!! https://t.co/H74vSqXLEM

I had a very intense stress dream about my historiographical intervention and then was wide awake at 3am trying to outline in my head. I would just like to NOT for a little while. Also how do people write books without losing their minds ??

Quoted @meglovesmuseums

Can anyone recommend readings/resources about organizational burnout? I have a lot for employees (mostly self-care) or mgrs. I’m looking for a larger view of how to build orgs that *don’t* burn people out. Or how to reset an org that is burned out itself.

This week marks 6 months of non-stop crisis management for nonprofit leaders (and really for everyone), which makes it a particularly good week to read this list of resources to prevent organizational burnout. https://t.co/vLbicOKOYh

Quoted @ColinPClarke

I'm extremely concerned that we could see another incident like the Oklahoma City bombing (1995) given the current wave of anti-government extremism in the United States. How many Timothy McVeigh wannabees are out there in this country?

The problem here is that we still have to explain "the Oklahoma City bombing (1995)". We're talking about the largest deliberate mass casualty on American soil between Pearl Harbor and 9/11, but most Americans don't know what it was (1) https://t.co/bVYy9YbM01

Week 1 of the semester, deep in thesis research/writing, and teleworking in a pandemic, and my computer just announced its own inevitable demise by giving me the half-black screen of death. It is working right now maybe not for long? Me to me, on repeat: https://t.co/TnsuPpSoRA
