Patricia Marroquin Norby is the first ever Associate Curator of Native American Art and the first Native American to serve as a curator for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She joins us to discuss her background, groundbreaking career, and the changes she is helping to bring to the Met, including land and water acknowledgment plaques in and outside of the museum.

Have you ever asked yourself “How did I end up here?” “What experiences and circumstances have led to where I am right now?” Bob McKinnon believes these are the most important questions we can ask ourselves and the mere act of reflection will lead to a better society for us all. Bob is host of the Attribution With Bob McKinnon podcast which is distributed by PBS Chasing The Dream, director of the non-profit Moving Up Media and author of the book “Three Little Engines” which is a modern retelling of the beloved childhood classic “The Little Engine That Could.” Tonight he joins us as part of our Chasing The Dream initiative to explore the concepts of social mobility and inequality in a manner with which young children can identify.
