Historical Information

The following information is captured from the Vimeo description of this exhibit:

“Emerging from Within is a historical look into the untold stories and life histories of several of KSU's diversity advocates. The project aims to generate greater understanding of diversity and inclusion at KSU and to archive the efforts of faculty and staff over time. Some of the featured individuals have retired from the University, others continue to play a central role in making KSU a premier diverse institution. A total of 14 individuals participated in the project. Each person has a unique history and has overcome obstacles to be part of a growing University in an ever-changing society. Their contributions range from speaking out against acts of exclusion and injustice, supporting others through both small and large deeds, establishing programs to meet the needs of KSU's diverse body, and building bridges between KSU and surrounding marginalized communities. With humility and grace, these individuals have shared the stories, experiences, and teachings that contributed to their identity and advocacy.”

These videos were created for this online exhibit, Emerging from Within, that was originally hosted on the Diversity and Inclusion Website, Following an update to the website CMS software older portions of the website were removed and in this case the collection was removed.
