Vashti DuBois

Vashti DuBois founded The Colored Girls Museum in 2015, to “honor the stories, experiences, and history of Colored Girls throughout the African Diaspora.” It is the first memoir museum of its kind. TCGM initiates the ordinary object, submitted by the colored girl herself, as a representative of an aspect of her story and personal history which she finds meaningful. DuBois’ 30-year career in non-profit and arts administration has focused primarily on issues impacting girls and women of color.
