In 1991, Katherine Dunham generously donated portions of her massive collection to the Missouri History Museum (MHM). The online exhibition explores Dunham's research and work in anthropology, her revolutionary dance technique, her film career, her global activism, her anthropological interest, and her enduring legacy. The online exhibition includes images of artifacts from the Katherine Dunham Collection (dresses, masks, shoes) located in the Missouri History Museum Collections facility and several photographs that are housed in the Missouri History Museum Photographs and Prints Collection.
