“Black at Bryn Mawr” Walking Tours and Discussion

Posted April 16th, 2015 at 1:52 pm.

For their Praxis III independent study project this year, Emma Kioko ’15 and Grace Pusey ’15 have created a project that brings to light the history and experiences of Black students, staff, and faculty at Bryn Mawr College since its founding.

Titled “Black at Bryn Mawr,” the project has several components—a digital historical record in the form of a blog and a walking tour of  spaces of both racial conflict and conversation on campus. Emma and Grace are also developing a digital map to record their findings.

Emma and Grace  have been aided by the guidance and support of Monica Mercado (CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow and Director, The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women’s Education) and Sharon Ullman (Chair, Department of History).

They will be giving an overview of their project in the 2nd floor seminar room (205) of Canaday Library on Friday, April 24, from 4-5 p.m. as part of the Friday Finds series. A walking tour will be offered prior to the event. Additional tours are being held on Saturday, April 24, and Monday, May 4. To RSVP for a tour, and for more information, go here.
