Smithsonian Memories Project, 1996 – S. Reinckens

About the Project

When Sharon Reinckens arrived at the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum in 1983, she thought she was going to continue her work in exhibition design. What she quickly discovered, however, was that she was really a “community worker.” Join a group of volunpeers in transcribing an interview with Reinckens, deputy director of the museum, from the Smithsonian’s 1996 Folklife Festival. She recounted what it was like to work with founding director John Kinard, what it meant to serve in a community museum, and the various projects staff balanced there.
