Smithsonian names new Director for Anacostia Museum





The Smithsonian Institution has named a Howard University alumna as director of the Anacostia Museum and Center for African American History and Culture. It's a homecoming of sorts for Camille Giraud Akeju, who lived in Washington during her college years and interned at the Smithsonian. The 55-year-old is currently the president of the Harlem School of the Arts and has spent most of her career in New York.
