Celebrate UAB Black History by learning about African Americans and their achievements as "firsts" at UAB. Attendees will review the process of campus integration and move into the firsts (first African American students, faculty, student organizations, faculty organizations, etc.) and into the post-1969 years when UAB became an independent university. The discussion will consist of various firsts up to the present times.

Our special guest will be Timothy Pennycuff, Associate Professor & University Archivist.

Co-sponsored by UAB Libraries, African American Faculty Association and UAB's Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
