Black Critical Frameworks and Communities at JMU and Beyond, 1968 to the Present

Description

Black Studies and Black Spaces

Black Critical Frameworks and Communities at JMU and Beyond, 1968 to the Present is a course designed and taught by Dr. Besi Muhonja and Dr. Mollie Godfrey and developed through a Provost’s Faculty Curriculum Diversity Grant. Fall 2019 course students created an exhibit to locate JMU within this national history, while creating an archive for JMU Special Collections. The exhibit is currently on display at various locations in ISAT/ENGO.

Additionally, students created a Black Firsts at JMU timeline to honor the firsts who paved the way to have courses, jobs, and a voice for many Black and minority students
