Black Lives Matter: Virtual Exhibit

Black students, scholars, and leaders have made significant contributions to UNCW and our surrounding community. To celebrate the courage and tenacity of those who led the charge towards their right to higher education, the Office of the Arts has created a revolving exhibit that highlights the trailblazers of the past and present, and exposes the challenges they overcame—many of which still exist today. The UNCW Office of the Arts stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. Click here to learn more.
