The Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture has a new executive director.
Wanda Q. Draper. who is currently the Director of Programming and Public Affairs at WBAL-TV, will take the helm of the Pratt St. institution on Sept. 28. A Baltimore native, Draper was an original board member of the museum. Along with WBAL-TV, she has also worked as a Baltimore Sun columnist, led community affairs at the National Aquarium and was a panelist on PBS’ Maryland NewsRap.
“We feel that she has the right mix of leadership and management skills, community connections, museum knowledge, and values that will help strengthen the capacity of the Reginald F. Lewis Museum,” board chair Beverly A. Cooper said in a statement.
Draper was selected after a national search. Former executive director Dr. Askew “Skipp” Sanders retired earlier this year.
