This chapter focuses on the participatory research projects African Immigrant Folklife and Will to Adorn: African American Style, Community, Identity, which provided fieldwork training that has yielded documentation for the planning of Smithsonian Folklife Festivals and other projects. The author reflects on the applied aspects of public folklore, describing a curatorial approach that prioritizes commitment to community self-determination and building reciprocal research-learning relationships between Smithsonian staff and community-based cultural researchers.
