The Black at Bryn Mawr tour and digital exhibit bring to light the previously hidden stories and experiences of African-American students, staff and faculty at the College. The program draws on the initial research of Grace Pusey '15 and Emma Kioko '15, research that the National Council on Public History (NCPH) selected as the honorable mention for its 2016 NCPH Student Project Award. Since 2015, when the project began, these stories and experiences, as well as critical documents and photographs, have been archived on Bryn Mawr's website and shared in workshops and on walking tours. The program evolves along with the College and as additional research is conducted, chiefly by students and through the College's Special Collections.
In the summer of 2018, Pensby Fellow Jada Ceasar conducted research on the sustainability of the program, looking at peer institutions Mount Holyoke and Smith.
Currently, the Black at Bryn Mawr program is coordinated by Jada Ceasar '20 (email@example.com) and Kamara Simms '19 (firstname.lastname@example.org), with support from Dean Christman (email@example.com; 610-526-6594).
