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.
