Project shows racial history

An exhibition opening followed by “Celebrating Community Partnerships” dinner will be Tuesday, May 4, in the Jones Room of the Woodruff Library, as part of “Picturing Race at Emory.”

This student project of Transforming Community Project begins at 6 p.m. in the Woodruff second floor lobby area with the opening of an exhibition of images from the Manuscript, Archives and Rare Books Library on the history of race at Emory.

Postdoctoral fellow Andy Urban, who teaches the class, says the students have put brief descriptions of the contexts of the photos, calling them “very provocative, very revealing.”

Following dinner, which begins around 6:30 p.m., Urban says students will give presentations of their work on community projects including a biracial history project in the Candler Park area and work with the Mason Avenue Co-Op, which works for equitable housing, based in Edgewood.

The event is free and open to all. For more information, contact
