Michael Boulware Moore, president and CEO of the International African American Museum (IAAM) , has announced his resignation.
Moore’s final day as IAAM president and CEO will be August 2. Dr. Bernard Powers, who serves on the IAAM board of directors, will serve as the interim CEO. Dr. Elijah Heyward, III, IAAM chief operating officer, will take over day-to-day management responsibilities.
The IAAM will host its groundbreaking later this year. The museum’s construction contract is set to go before City Council on July 16; this represents a major milestone.
