Description: Long before she joined the Museum, Denise was an acclaimed storyteller and interpreter dedicated to preserving and sharing African American history with residents of and visitors to Philadelphia. Her story has been wonderfully told as part of Sofiya Ballin’s Black History Untold project and by the Philadelphia Inquirer. We are grateful to her for wisdom, insight, and generous spirit, and we take heart in remembering the legacy she leaves behind in each of us and in every person she touched. Our hearts are with her friends and family at this difficult time.
