Collection Description

Administrative History

The Transforming Community Project at Emory University was a multiyear initiative to increase communication about race and the history of race at the University founded by history professor Leslie M. Harris and journalism professor Catherine S. Manegold. It involved faculty, staff, students, and alumni in community-driven conversations and awarded mini-grants on campus, including those for speakers, creative works, and spin-off events. The project stemmed from a series of incidents on campus in 2003 and 2004 involving both faculty and students that brought to light issues of race and racism at Emory.
