Please feel free to share your thoughts and reactions to the exhibit. Have your own story relating to Bowdoin Africana Studies or the African American Society? We want to hear from you.
During the AF/AM/50 weekend (November 8-10, 2019) student oral historians collected interviews with alumni and former faculty about their experiences at Bowdoin. These projects will be preserved permanently by Special Collections & Archives. Listen to those recordings here.
Join Special Collections & Archives’ effort to identify people from Bowdoin’s past. Many photos in Bowdoin’s Historic Image Gallery feature former students, faculty, and staff of the College whose names we don’t know. Every photo in the Gallery has an “Identify People in this Photo” button you can use to help us improve our captions, helping future researchers find the images they seek.
