Sarah Pharaon '15G


Sarah Pharaon '15G

Sarah Pharaon '15G is the Senior Director of the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, a dynamic global network of over 250 museums, historic sites, and memory initiatives in 65 countries. These sites inspire millions of people each year to explore the parallels between past and present, build bridges of understanding, and take action on pressing social issues. She directs the Coalition's work in North America on issues of immigration, race, education equity, and mass incarceration and has led two national dialogue initiatives: From Brown v Board to Ferguson and National Dialogues on Immigration. 

She consulted on the design of Eastern State Penitentiary's Prisons Today: Questions in the Age of Mass Incarceration, which garnered the American Alliance of Museums’ top prize in 2016. Pharaon created programming and offered training for the 2018 Americans exhibit at the National Museum of the American Indian, which presents the explicit and implicit racism inherent in depictions of Native Americans in U.S. culture.

Prior to her work at the Coalition, Sarah was Director of Education at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum and was the founding curator of the Arab American National Museum.  She is a consulting expert on dialogue, community engagement and telling marginalized stories for the National Park Service and serves on the Leadership Council for the American Association of State and Local History.
