Friday Finds: Presences & Absences: Assessing the Legacies of the Bryn Mawr Summer School for Women Workers in Industry

Presentation by Beck Morawski, ’21 on their online exhibition, For Roses, Too, in honor of the centennial of the Bryn Mawr Summer School for Women Workers in Industry.   The Summer School opened in 1921 and ran through 1938, during which time it hosted about a thousand women working in manual labor and the industrial sector, recruited the first Black students to study on campus, redefined what it means to be a Bryn Mawr student, and radically changed the playing field of worker's education throughout the country.  College Archivist Allison Mills will host the event and moderate the discussion following Beck’s talk.
