If you have had even a brief interaction with Ebonee Davis, you know that she exudes tranquility.  If you have spoken with her a while longer, you have also found that she has extensive knowledge of African American history and that she is a woman of deep faith. For all these reasons and more, I am delighted to announce that Ebonee has joined the Office of Multicultural Ministries full-time as Associate for Multicultural Ministries Programming and Historical Research for Reparations.
Since November 2017, Ebonee has served as the Processing Archivist for the African American Episcopal Historical Collection, which is a joint project of VTS and the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church. Her experience in that position, along with her educational and professional background, made her the perfect candidate for her new role with Multicultural Ministries. Ebonee holds a Bachelor of Arts in History from Howard University and a Master of Arts in Museum Studies and Historical Preservation from Morgan State University.
As a public historian, she has always worked in the field of museums and archives; developing educational programs and establishing community initiatives that help the public engage with local Black history. Ebonee’s passion for sharing history recently led her to embark upon a new adventure: studying for a Ph.D. in African Diaspora History at Howard University Please do congratulate Ebonee on these exciting new chapters in her already accomplished career.
