The exhibit includes videos, photography, cultural artifacts, and audio interviews and will be shown for two weeks in Loyola Hall on the Fairfield University campus.
The project is an offshoot of Professor Walker-Canton’s full length documentary film on Black women in higher education, scheduled to be released this spring.
