"While most have passed from this world, the collective meaning of their images resonate loudly as veneration for those whose lives were bound by a love of art, a sense of purpose, and the pursuit of justice." -Dr. Pellom McDaniels III
As a graduate student, faculty member, and curator of African American collections Pellom McDaniels III, PhD was a fundamental contributor to the Emory Libraries exhibitions program for many years. He was a passionate advocate for individual growth and social change through education and the arts. This tribute is a physical installation on Level 1 of the Robert W. Woodruff Library at Emory University. A bit of this great human’s presence, artwork, and writing invite patrons to join in his passion for learning from the unparalleled African American collections of the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library he helped build.
