Celebrating Diverse Voices at UVM: Ten Black Experiences
This inagural exhibit opened in the Davis Center's Fireplace Lounge on February 10, 2021. Centered on the experiences of Black members of the UVM community, it highlights a long, rich, and complex history involving great accomplishments as well as hardship, prejudice, and bias. Taken together, these stories remind us not only of those who have come before us but also of the ways in which Black lives have mattered and shaped our institution for more than two centuries.
