The Black women faculty experience at Northwestern University has been invisible – until now. With your financial help, a documentary highlighting these women’s contributions will be completed.
In October 2021, former School of Education Professor Diana Slaughter Kotzin, Ph.D. (first tenured Black woman in SESP and the Constance E. Clayton Professor Emerita of the University of Pennsylvania) spearheaded the launch of this film about the history and experiences of Black women academics at NU.
The following have agreed to participate:

Your financial contribution will help finish the film.
