The Office of Wintersession and Campus Engagement and the Carl A. Fields Center invite students, faculty and staff to the unveiling of the virtual gallery To Be Known and Heard: Systemic Racism and Princeton University. This virtual gallery is a vibrant visual narrative experience that confronts the legacy of racism within the University’s history and present, shares historical and contemporary examples of anti-racist work at the University, details significant student activism efforts over the years, and incorporates community members’ constructive visions for a more equal and just University and world.

The virtual gallery includes a chronology of key moments and people in Princeton University’s racial history and several thematic sections in which attendees can explore and learn. This launch event will alternate between attendees looking through the virtual gallery themselves and learning from the reflections of roundtable discussion participants Audience members will be able to ask questions and engage with the interactive parts of the site.

As with other Wintersession offerings, this event is open only to Princeton students, faculty and staff. RSVP via webform (NetID required).
