I know this is very late notice, but there will be a panel discussion tomorrow morning, from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM, featuring three of UVa’s earliest black alumni, alongside three current black students at the University.
According to the UVa press release:
A panel discussion, free and open to the public, will be held Sept. 4 from 9 to 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Harrison Institute/Small Special Collections Library. The discussion, “Looking Back, Moving Forward” will feature three early alumni and three current students. Deborah McDowell, English professor and director of U.Va.’s Carter G. Woodson Institute, will be the moderator.
Some of the alumni attending include the first black graduates of the School of Law and the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the first to desegregate the College of Arts & Sciences and the first black student to live on the Lawn. Also in attendance will be the first and second African-American women to graduate from the School of Medicine.
