The Originals: African American Faculty and Senior Administrators at Berkeley

Exhibit - Artifacts | May 1 – September 1, 2014 every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday | Bancroft Library, Rowell Cases


Bancroft Library


This exhibition highlights the Regional Oral History Office's recently completed project to conduct interviews with 18 pioneering African American faculty and senior administrators who joined Berkeley before the advent of affirmative action policies in the 1970s. By their example, achievements, and professional work these leaders helped lay the groundwork for diversity and access at the university, opening doors of opportunity and economic uplift for all traditionally disadvantaged and underrepresented groups in the state. Transcript excerpts, photographs, correspondence, publications, and other documentation from ROHO, the University Archives, and The Bancroft Library manuscript collections illustrate the experiences of these pioneers.
