Smithsonian's Anacostia Community Museum Benefit Luncheon Features Johnnetta Cole as Keynote Speaker
Johnnetta B. Cole is the Director of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art.


WASHINGTON, DC.- Johnnetta Betsch Cole, director of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art, is the featured keynote speaker for “Jubilee,” the 42nd anniversary luncheon of the Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum. The luncheon, which is a fundraiser for the museum, will take place Tuesday, Sept. 15, at noon at the National Press Club Ballroom.

Colbert I. King, a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist at the Washington Post, will be awarded the John R. Kinard Leadership in Community Service Award during the event. Kinard was founding director of the Anacostia Community Museum from its inception until his death in 1989. Dorothy I. Height, chair and president emerita of the National Council of Negro Women, is honorary chairperson for the benefit, which also features a silent auction of a piece by renowned artist Sam Gilliam. Bruce Johnson, weekend anchor for WUSA Channel 9, is the master of ceremonies.

Among her many achievements, Cole has served as president of two southern colleges, Bennett College for Women in Greensboro, N.C., and Spelman College in Atlanta, where she generated a $20 million gift from Bill and Camille Cosby. Most recently, she held a distinguished professorship at Emory University. She is currently the board chair of the Johnnetta B. Cole Global Diversity and Inclusion Institute founded at Bennett College, which supports diversity in the workplace.

“Jubilee” is the culminating event of “Jubilee: African American Celebration,” the museum’s original and insightful exhibition on view through Sept. 20. Through a colorful, season-organized examination of historical and contemporary holidays and traditions, the exhibition offers a clever discussion of accomplishment and triumph in African American history and culture.
