Dr. Stephanie Lampkin

​The Delaware Historical Society (DHS) has selected University of Delaware History alumna Stephanie Lampkin (Ph.D. History, 2016) as the next director of the Jane and Littleton Mitchell Center for African American Heritage, located within the Delaware History Museum. Dr. Lampkin recently served as Museum Collections Manager at the Science History Institute in Philadelphia. Ms. Lampkin holds a B.A. in History & Ethnic Studies from Cornell College, and a master’s degree with a Museum Studies certificate, and Ph.D. from the University of Delaware.

As an history instructor at the University of Delaware Dr. Lampkin designed a class website for students to access numerous sources on early history of Africa, China and India. She served as Chair of the Conference Committee for the Small Museum Association’s 2019 annual conference, was involved with the American Alliance of Museum’s (AAM) Advocacy Day and the Philadelphia Cultural Alliance’s #SaveTheArts advocacy campaigns. Her volunteer activities include serving on the Collections and Exhibitions Committee at the African American Museum of Philadelphia and as a board member for the Association for Registrars and Collections Specialists. Dr. Lampkin said what attracted her to working at the Mitchell center most is the opportunity to engage with the community that is the focus of the center. “I am eager to engage with members of the local community and make the rich and varied African American experiences and stories front and center in the history of Delaware,” she said. “As director of the Jane and Littleton Mitchell Center for African American Heritage, I look forward to continue offering engaging programs and events while developing deeper partnerships with colleagues across the state.”

Congratulations Stephanie!
