#OTD-ish 22 September 1968 The Youth Advisory Council of the Anacostia Community Museum worked with Zora Martin Felton, director of education and chief advisor, and other museum staff to further the institution’s mission. According to the museum’s 50th anniversary exhibit, the Youth Advisory Council was developed in 1967 to engage young people in the work of the museum and the community. Council members participated in all museum activities and created an intensive African American heritage and community service program with museum staff.”
