DINA BAILEY
CURATOR
Dina Bailey
Dina Bailey is the Director, Interpretation Curator, for the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, Georgia. The new institution opened in June 2014 and has a mission to empower everyone to take the protection of everyone's human's rights personally. In fulfilling this mission, Ms. Bailey oversees four major components of the institution: interpretation, content, temporary exhibitions, educational initiatives, and community programming.  
 
Dina will join us on Game Changers to discuss how The Center is being received since its opening. We will hear more about the core mission of The Center and why Atlanta is such an appropriate city for the interpretation of civil and human rights. This is not Dina's first experience with historical culture. She was the Director of Museum Experiences for the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center where she oversaw the entire programmatic side of the institution. 
 
Dina has also been a high school English teacher, teaching American Literature and Advanced Placement English. Game Changers is looking forward to her teaching us more about the Center, how we can get involved, and how she is making what appears to be an integrated impact in her role.
 
Dina's degrees include a Bachelor of Science in Middle/Secondary Education from Butler University; a Masters in Anthropology of Development and Social Transformation from the University of Sussex; and, a graduate certification in Museum Studies from the University of Cincinnati. 
 
Ms. Bailey has been published in both the formal education and museum fields. Join us Saturday as she becomes an official member of the Game Changers' archives discussing civil and human rights.
