Black at Bryn Mawr: What's Next?

  1. 1. Black at Bryn Mawr: What’s Next? Monica L. Mercado Postdoctoral Fellow and Director, The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women’s Education at Bryn Mawr College blackatbrynmawr.blogs.brynmawr.edu | #BlackatBrynMawr September 30, 2015
  2. 2. Black at Bryn Mawr was designed to learn about the experiences of Black students, staff, and faculty at Bryn Mawr and to analyze the ways in which the College has chosen to record, remember, and represent racism in its history... The purpose of the project is to build institutional memory of the College’s engagement with racism so that future generations of students can hold themselves and the College community to higher standards of awareness and accountability to racial power dynamics both inside and outside the classroom. -- Emma Kioko ’15 and Grace Pusey ’15 (Spring 2015)
  3. 3. Black at Bryn Mawr: The Walking Tour
  4. 4. Black at Bryn Mawr as Public-Facing History I have realized the incredible power and importance of asking questions. Questions made the difference between some of our good tours and some of our great tours... Some of the best moments on the tours for me were times when a student or a staff member would ask a question and another community member on the tour would answer. The interactions between community members on the tour would generally create a much more relaxed and engaged atmosphere, which allowed the participants on the tour to reflect even more on the spaces and information we presented. I also think that questions pushed our research even further. -- Emma Kioko ‘15
  5. 5. Black at Bryn Mawr: In the Classroom
  6. 6. Black at Bryn Mawr: June - October 2015 15 Public tours conducted 6 Bryn Mawr class sessions led 5 Conference/public presentations Including BMC Community Day of Learning (March 2015), Untold Histories conference at Rutgers- Camden (April 2015), and Women’s History in the Digital World at Bryn Mawr (May 2015) Upcoming public tours: • Alumnae Volunteer Summit / Oct. 3 • Family Weekend / Oct. 23 More than 250 community members and neighbors have taken the tour to date.
  7. 7. Dedication of the Enid Cook ‘31 Center, August 2015 I am touched that Enid Cook's story has moved others as deeply as it moved me. I never imagined that six months after I published her story to the Black at Bryn Mawr blog I would be looking up at Enid Cook's name on a campus building, the first building on Bryn Mawr's campus to be named after a woman of color. Her story is now a permanent part of Bryn Mawr's landscape. For women of color, Enid Cook's story resonates and emboldens; for white women like me, her story reminds us that we must be vigilant in confronting ignorance and injustice. -- Grace Pusey ‘15
  8. 8. What’s Next? Fall Break Workshop: October 16-17, 2015 Black at Bryn Mawr project co-founder Grace Pusey '15 will lead an intensive two-day reading, writing, and discussion-based workshop with current undergraduate students organized around the following goals: - to reflect on the role that race plays in students' own and others' identities and experiences; - to learn to recognize how racial power dynamics impact themselves and others on campus; - to explore concepts of power, privilege, and oppression related to race; - to strengthen competencies in reading, writing, and discussing critical theory; and, - to deepen students' understanding of how history can be used as a tool for social justice on campus and beyond. Applications due tonight!
