The history of the BCC campus is much more than the Hall of Fame and other Stanford White buildings. To document other campus histories, BCC faculty members Prithi Kanakamedala, Ahmed Reid, and Cynthia Tobar developed the online exhibit We Must Stand United, which “explores the contributions of history makers such as James Colston, Roscoe Brown, and countless generations of students who have made BCC a center of black activism.” Prithi, as assistant professor of history, will be on the Commemoration panel, discussing integrating African-American history into public history; she served the curator and historian for the In Pursuit of Freedom exhibit at the Brooklyn Historical Society. Cynthia, BCC’s first archivist, will be on the Students, History, & the Hall of Fame, discussing her work using archival sources with BCC students.
