To Be Known and Heard

Join us for the unveiling of the virtual gallery “To Be Known and Heard: Systemic Racism and Princeton University.” This virtual gallery is a vibrant visual narrative experience that confronts the legacy of racism within the University’s history and present, shares historical and contemporary examples of anti-racist work at the University, details significant student activism efforts over the years, and incorporates community members’ constructive visions for a more equal and just University and world.

The virtual gallery includes a chronology of key moments and people in Princeton University’s racial history and several thematic sections in which attendees can explore and learn. This launch event will alternate between attendees looking through the virtual gallery themselves and learning from the reflections of roundtable discussion participants: Professor Brian Eugenio Herrera (Lewis Center for the Arts & GSS), Professor Tera Hunter (African American Studies & History), Professor Beth Lew-Williams (History), Professor Dan-el Padilla Peralta (Classics), co-moderated by Tennille Haynes (Carl A. Fields Center) and Judy Jarvis (Office of Wintersession & Campus Engagement). Audience members will be able to ask questions and engage with the interactive parts of the site.

“To Be Known and Heard” is a joint project of the Office of Wintersession and Campus Engagement and the Carl A. Fields Center, with co-sponsorship from Office of the Vice Provost for Institutional Equity and Diversity, University Archives, Office of the Vice President for Campus Life, the Campus Conversations on Identities Fund, the Program in American Studies, the History Department, the Sociology Department and the Humanities Council. The virtual gallery was designed by Isometric Studio, and the work was informed by the ideas and feedback of an advisory group consisting of professors, administrators, and students.

To request accommodations for this event, please contact the workshop or event facilitator at least 3 working days prior to the event.
