frican American to become the Director of a Smithsonian Institution museum. This visionary museum pioneer, who won acclaim from all over the nation and the world, remained a revered community organizer committed to his family, church, Anacosita neighborhood, and Washington, D.C. community. The dramatic scope of John Kinard’s extraordinary life is richly detailed by his daughter, Dr. Joy G. Kinard.
