The Jackson Center Board of Advisors is an international network of oral historians, community activists, scholars, and visionaries who guide, extend, and deepen our work.  The Board of Advisors has been critical to the Jackson Center throughout its history.  While this board does not convene regularly, it is a group of Jackson Center consultants who are committed to our mission.
