It’s Monday, which means we’re back with another story from our friends in the WBUR Newsroom while The Common works on some future projects.

Today's story is a quick but important one, and comes to us from WBUR Arts Reporter Cristela Guerra.

It’s about a former curator at the Worcester Art Museum, who is suing senior leadership at the museum, accusing them of discrimination.

WBUR Arts Reporter Cristela Guerra reports that according to the lawsuit, former curator Rachel Parikh was “mocked and ridiculed because she is a brown-skinned South Asian” Indian woman and was “subjected to a hostile and offensive work environment."
