Black History Month Exhibit Series -- Mrs. Bertha F. Wilson: Reflecting on a Career, an Institution, and a City

To mark Black History Month (BHM) this year, the World Bank Group (WBG) Archives turns its attention to Bertha Wilson, recently retired WBG archivist and author of the previous articles in our BHM series. As an African American woman and native Washington DC resident, she has a unique perspective on the evolution of both the World Bank Group and her city. In her reflections shared in this article, we see how her identity as a Black woman, a District resident, and a professional archivist intermingle and inform one another.
