Mencer Donahue “Don” Edwards is regarded as one of the nation’s foremost mediators, an expert in alternative dispute resolution and civic engagement through the business he owns in downtown Washington, D.C.
Edwards, who was in Madison this week, played a central role in the painstaking process that led to locating the National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opens this fall, between the White House and the U.S. Capitol on the National Mall.
For Edwards, a 64-year-old African-American who grew up in segregated Charleston, South Carolina, you can imagine the gratification. The museum’s grandeur and location, adjacent to the Museum of American History, are spectacular.
“Where the museum ended up is at what is called the 100-percent corner,” Edwards told me in an interview in Madison this week.
