National Civil Rights Museum President Beverly Robertson today announced her retirement, effective July 1, 2014, after leading the museum through 16 years of "momentous progress and accomplishments," Board Chairman Herbert Hilliard said.
"Since 1997, Beverly has led the museum in an era characterized by exciting progress, accomplishment, and growing national and international prestige, all of which are a direct result of her special brand of leadership and her commitment to being a steward for one of America's most hallowed historic places," said Hilliard.
"Although she is retiring at the end of our fiscal year in July, 2014, she will remain involved through the rest of the calendar year to ensure a smooth transition and continuity in leadership."
