Wonderful Women Wednesday: Balcha G. Fellows

Each week, the Archives features a woman who has been a groundbreaker at the Smithsonian, past or present, in a series titled Wonderful Women Wednesday.

Balcha G. Fellows worked as the head of the international affairs program and as a special assistant to founding director John Kinard at the Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum between 1967 and 1978. Fellows was one of few staff members to join the Museum even before its opening on September 15, 1967.
