Anna Forgerson Hindley (she/her/hers) is the supervisory coordinator of the Early Childhood Education Initiative at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. Her work focuses on supporting positive identity development for all young children, uplifting joy in human diversity and inclusion, and interrupting structures of racism and inequity. With Florida and New Jersey roots, she currently lives with her husband and two children in Washington, D.C. Being a mother keeps her present, intentional, compassionate, and tired. Anna loves sailing, children’s literature, and excitedly talking about the book she is currently reading.
