About Black at Bryn Mawr
The Black at Bryn Mawr program brings 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. Since 2015, when the project began, these stories and experiences, as well as critical documents and photographs, have been archived on Bryn Mawr's website and shared in workshops and on walking tours.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, and is currently adding a mentoring component.
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 Khari Bowman '21(firstname.lastname@example.org) and Fatmata Sesay '23 (email@example.com), with support from Dean Christman (firstname.lastname@example.org; 610-526-6594).
