Allison joined the BMRC in May 2020. In this role, she serves as the primary lead for the educational programming and initiatives, primarily the Archie Motley Archival Internship Program and the Summer Short-term Fellowship Program. She also works with Northwestern University's Office of Civic Engagement as a partner for the Black Metropolis Graduate Assistantship program, now in its second year. During the summer of 2022, Allison helped to pilot "Tools for Exploration & Sharing Chicago’s African American Archival Gems" a program bringing together history scholars and archivists with Chicago Public School history teachers looking to help their students understand the importance of archival collections to historical research. The program is on pause this year but will resume in the summer of 2024. Additionally, Allison is also responsible for the BMRC's principal communication tools, the monthly e-newsletter, and all social media activity and manages the daily operations of the consortium.
