WE WILL GATHER IN FRONT OF THOMAS to take the Black at Bryn Mawr tour,
guided by Grace Pusey '15 (who co-researched and designed it) and
Monica Mercado (Postdoctoral Fellow and Director, The Albert M. Greenfield
Digital Center for the History of Women’s Education), who guided Grace's research.
Afterwards we'll come back to our Taylor Hall classrooms for a discussion with
Monica and Grace.
