    Commemorating History: the Managing the MLK50 Project.
    Tuesday, March 19th, Dinner Meeting
    Crescent Club - 6pm - 7:45pm
    Terri Lee Freeman
    President
    National Civil Rights Museum
    About our Speaker:

    Terri Lee Freeman was appointed president of the National Civil Rights Museum in November 2014. As president, Freeman is responsible for providing strategic leadership in furthering the museum’s mission as an educational and cultural institution.

    In 2018, under the leadership of Freeman presented “MLK50: Where Do we Go From Here?”, the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. King. The year-long commemoration was a global remembrance of Dr. King’s life work and recognition of his legacy. Prior to joining the Museum, Ms. Freeman served as president of the Community Foundation for the National Capital Region for 18 years. She distinguished herself for her community building, and her ability to grow the Foundation’s reputation as an effective and strategic funder in the metropolitan DC region.

    Her intense passion for the nonprofit sector and community was nurtured while serving as the founding executive director of the Freddie Mac Foundation, at the time, one of the five largest corporate foundations in the metropolitan Washington region.

    A graduate of the 2016 class of Leadership Memphis, Ms. Freeman currently serves as the Vice Chair of the Community Foundation for Greater Memphis. She also serves on the boards of the Greater Memphis Chamber of Commerce; the Memphis Brand Initiative; New Memphis Institute; and the Orpheum. Regionally, she is a member of the Tennessee Education Equity Coalition and the Southeastern Council on Foundations. She has been identified as a Memphis Mover & Shaker by Memphis Magazine, and has been featured in Memphis Business, the Commercial Appeal and Style Blueprint. A frequently sought after speaker, Ms. Freeman lives by the saying that what’s most important is what people say about you when you aren’t in the room.

    Freeman received her bachelor’s degree in journalism/communication arts from the University of Dayton and her Master's degree in organizational communications from Howard University. She is married to Dr. Bowyer G. Freeman and is the proud mother of three daughters and grandmother of two.
