"Highlighting Bragg's work with museums from 1909 to 1939, Allen examines the life and career of the first woman in the United States to lead a publicly supported museum - and the oldest such institution in the country - the Charleston Museum. Bragg used the facility to provide educational services to both black and white South Carolinians and broke new ground with her educational programs, including her revolutionary traveling exhibits, known as "Bragg boxes." Earning national recognition for such efforts, Bragg made lasting contributions locally.".
