Boston’s Museum of African American History installs new Executive Director

leave a comment »

Museum of African American History Board of Directors names Marita Rivero the new Executive Director.

Rivero succeeds Beverly Morgan-Welch, who served as the Executive Director with great distinction for 16 years. 

In November, Morgan-Welch left to become Associate Director of External Affairs at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC.

A long-time member of the MAAH board of directors and current Chair of the Board of Trustees of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Rivero has deep knowledge and experience in national museums. 

 She has served as the Museum’s Interim Executive Director since Morgan-Welch’s departure.

Marita has agreed to lead this important institution on a permanent basis. 

The board is thrilled that Marita has agreed to lead this important institution on a permanent basis. 
She brings to the role stellar business acumen, media savvy, and the passion and imagination that will  help us build on the success of nearly 50 years and propel us to have an even greater impact in the years ahead.  
“The Museum has played such an important role in opening our understanding of the present-day American story. I am excited by the prospect of furthering work linking preservation and education with civic opportunities in our democracy,” Rivero said.

The board encourages you to welcome and embrace Marita, and to continue this journey with us. 

As Beverly said in her parting words, “We have only scratched the surface of the research necessary to document and honor the traditions of our fore-parents, who first built African Meeting Houses to gather and plan community life in the 18th and 19th centuries.”
