ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Nwaka Onwusa is Vice President of Curatorial Affairs and Chief Curator for The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. Prior to joining the Rock Hall, she was a curator at The GRAMMY Museum at L.A. Nwaka has developed and executed numerous original and memorial exhibits, including It’s Been Said All Along: Voices of Rage Hope and Empowerment, Legends of Rock, Woodstock at 50, All Eyes on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur, Jenni Rivera: La Gran Señora; Ringo: Peace and Love, and Bruce W. Talamon: Soul, R&B, And Funk Photographs 1972-1982: A Love Letter to the Music to name a few. Her exhibits have been experienced by museum audiences across the U.S., in the UK, and in the digital space. She began her career as an educator and has maintained a commitment to the museum as an inspiring, informative, and interactive environment. Her exhibits have explored a great diversity of musical genres and talent and have examined their roles in social, cultural, and historical change. It’s Been Said All Along: Voices of Rage, Hope, and Empowerment was developed in response to heightened social unrest and the recent conversation over equality. It opened at the Rock Hall in June 2020 as the museum’s first coupling of a traditional exhibit with a comprehensive virtual experience. The GRAMMY’s The Music of the Civil Rights Movement was the first in a national music and education series introduced at the White House in February 2010. Recently her latest exhibit, It’s Been Said All Along: Voices of Rage, Hope, and Empowerment received an award from the Ohio Museum Association for Best Exhibition of 2020.
