The Brooklyn Museum sparks outrage by hiring a white curator for its African art exhibit

A New York City museum has sparked resentment after hiring a white woman to curate its African art collection.

The Brooklyn Museum announced on Monday it has appointed Kristen Windmuller-Luna as a curator of its African art collection.

And though she is a qualified candidate, with a PhD in African art history from Princeton University and as a prior educator for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the choice has left many on social media wondering why the museum did not hire an equally qualified person of color.

This would never happen in Wakanda!
