- The Founder & President of Heritage Salon is Jada Wright-Greene who is a black southern belle. Jada who will highlight her southern roots, “I was raised by a true Southern Belle, my grandmother who not only taught me the do’s and don’ts of being a Southern Belle, but exposed me to history, cultural events and introduced me to my first archiving project at our local church when I was 12.”
- The name Heritage Salon is reflective of the southern historical homes that had a “salon” which is a reception room where guest were received for entertaining.
- Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) will be featured on Heritage Salon. “Archives, museums, historical homes and cultural centers are essentially at every HBCU in the country that people are not aware of. Our mission is to expose people to these secret gems to draw interest in the museum and archival field. If people of diverse backgrounds are aware, they may consider Museum Studies as a profession which will translate into a more diverse career field.”
