BLACK WOMEN of AMHERST COLLEGE
When Black Women Rise, We All Rise
The Black Women of Amherst College is a storytelling project — a digital oral history encompassing a podcast plus a living digital archive — celebrating the Black Women of Amherst College, in connection with the bicentennial commemoration of Amherst College.
This project is about the unseen and unknown work that Black Women have had to do – and continue to do – to reshape powerful institutions across American society. Amherst College is a microcosm, and this project is an effort to bring visibility and empowerment to a community of Black women whose recognition is long overdue.
This story is not just about Amherst college and it’s not even just about Black women at Amherst college. This story is about the United States of America. And about Black women’s place both in America and in the larger world.
