Recognizing the Legacies of Black Women at Cal
To celebrate 150W, we honor some of the many Black women pioneers at the University of California, Berkeley with profiles of their legacies. Reflecting on Black History Month, UC President Michael V. Drake here acknowledges the contributions of Black leaders to the history of UC. We are committed to highlighting both the past struggles and achievements of Black women affiliated with the campus.
