Blacks @ MIT History Project

Began in October of 1995, the Black at MIT Project set out to document the contributions, experiences and history of members of the Black community at MIT.

From students to professors, Deans and notable staff, a key group of people curate this rich history and legacy at the Institute. Through research, use of archival materials and real time efforts, they are able to tell the Blacks story at MIT.

Clarence G. Williams, Emeritus Professor of Urban Studies & Planning and former Special Assistant to the President, hires ML Cornwall to take a portrait to also document who the curators behind the scenes are. Here are a few shots from the photo shoot and an impromptu meeting, of course.

In May, Glenna turned 90 and family from all over northern California, Seattle and New England took the time to celebrate with her.

Day in the Life

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care volunteers spend an entire day at various sites throughout the city of Hartford, CT. They visit a local nursing home, elementary school and a community development center. See how the team spent their day of philanthropy helping their neighbors.

The volunteers, or should I say philanthropists, performed outdoor painting projects, packed take-home bags at a pantry, created vegetable gardens and the list does on.
