On February 26, 30 Guttman students traveled to Washington, DC, for the Hollowed Grounds: Sites of African American Memories trip as part of Guttman’s celebration of Black History Month. The program was funded through the Guttman endowment and planned by Karla Fuller, Assistant Professor of Science, and Marcus Allen, Associate Professor of Urban Studies and Political Science, with assistance from Diversity Program Manager Arlene Peterson and Disability Accommodation Specialist Sylvester Allen.
While in DC, students toured sites important in the fight for African American equality in the U.S. including the African American Civil War Museum and the Mary McLeod Bethune Council House. Students also had the opportunity to visit Howard University, one of the nation’s premiere historically Black colleges. Students toured the campus and learned about campus life, transfer opportunities, and scholarships.
