This year Anna Lomax Wood retired as the Association for Cultural Equity’s executive director after 26 years. This event is an occasion to pay tribute to Anna’s accomplishments and contributions as an anthropologist, folklorist, and ethnomusicologist by bringing together in conversation colleagues working within different cultural communities. Over several decades Anna has dedicated her life’s work to documenting, preserving, and restoring the cultural legacy of folk artists in the United States and abroad. In turn she has mentored and served as an inspiration for the next generation of scholars and cultural workers who follow in her wake.
