The whole thread. Tears
On @NMAAHC's fifth anniversary, my heart swells with gratitude for the many who helped make the dream of the museum a reality—staff, volunteers, lawmakers, donors, members, and the many supporters in between. I'll share one of the best pieces of mail I received about the museum.

As always, Bernt Hugenholtz used the occasion of his closing remarks to celebrate the community of which he has been a large part & to thank the community foe coming together for this event.
Well, of course, the last last speaker of the day is Prof. Bernt Hugenholtz himself, concluding this wonderful conference.

Really significant insights from @JaneHallAU @AU_SOC — can’t wait to read the book. My prediction is it will become a required text in many communication classrooms!
The 2020 presidential campaign marked a turning point for women in politics. Join us for a panel that will discuss media coverage of women in politics and the treatment of female political journalists of color w/ @JaneHallAU, @BFischerMartin & @AprilDRyan: ow.ly/1tTN50FZtDb

Your taxes aren’t high because of schools or healthcare or food stamps. Your taxes are high because of rich people who game the system so they don’t have to pay their fair share.
