Storytelling has been a constant in Wanda Draper's life. The executive director of the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture got her start in journalism and has since held various positions in communications. After graduating from the University of Maryland, Wanda worked at the Evening Sun, and has also held positions at the National Aquarium and most recently at WBAL-TV as director of programming and public affairs. Wanda has been at the Lewis Museum since September, following the retirement of A. "Skipp" Sanders, and she talked about what led to her career change and what helped her survive in male-dominated newsrooms. She also discussed how she's addressing some of the museum's challenges, how Freddie Gray shifted the paradigm in Baltimore and commanding respect.
