Virtual Student Poster Exhibit: African-American Women in Indiana History: Finding Their Voices

Dr. Kim Stanley, Assistant Professor, History: 

Spring 2020:  Black Women’s History {HIST 213}: In honor of Women’s History Month,  students embarked on locating the voices of African American women in Indiana’s history. The historical record is often silent or only provides fragments on the lives of black women.  Because of this, we often do not know their experiences—and, if we do, it is often through the voice of someone else. Using Indiana State University Library’s Special Collections, students were tasked with placing and centering the voices and lives of black women within the history of Indiana.
