UNCG was one of only two universities selected by the nonprofit arm of Google to participate in the project.
UNCG’s exhibit weaves together photos, documents, handwritten letters and oral interviews to tell the stories of African Americans on campus from its earliest days through 1971. It was compiled by the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives.
Additionally, the archives has an exhibition in the display space between Jackson Library and the EUC.
