Another Light on the Hill Black Students at Tufts

What's new

The project undertaken in this online exhibit is significant, both in topic and in extent. Ultimately, DCA intends for this exhibit to stand as an introductory resource for all who are interested in the history of black faculty, staff, and students at Tufts University, with a descriptive timeline of events as well as associated biographical and topical pages. As such, updates will be made to exhibit items, text, structure, and content on a rolling basis. Please refer back to this page of a summary of new additions to this exhibit.

The most recent expansion of this work is the addition of a new exhibit based on Gerald Gill's work to create a walking tour of sites related to African American history at Tufts. That exhibit is available here.

We are currently working to create biographies of all people listed on the on Africana Memorial Plaque and will add these to a new linked exhibit during summer 2020.
