This exhibit features the history of early Black alumnae at the University of Denver (1900-1945). Most histories of women of color at predominantly white institutions begin and end with "firsts" – the first student, first faculty member, etc. Much is known about DU's first Black woman graduate Emma Azalia Hackley (1900) but less so for the second Black woman graduate Grace Mabel Andrews (AB 1908) and the Black women who followed her during the first half of the twentieth century.
