From Slavery to Scholarship
Reigate college is proud to host the Black Classicists Exhibition, curated by Michele Valerie Ronnick, Professor of Greek and Latin at Wayne State University. The exhibition has toured extensively in the United States and now, courtesy of Professor Ronnick and Harvard University Press, it has arrived in the UK and is touring UK schools and colleges.
The exhibition celebrates the important role of African Americans in the field of Classics and features extraordinary men and women who paved the way for a new tradition of black intellectualism, resulting in greater opportunities for future generations of African Americans. You can find out more about the exhibition here.
