Burkett was hired in 1997 as Emory’s first curator for African American collections for what is now the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library. Over the past 21 years, he has led the university’s effort to build collections of rare books, manuscripts, serials, photographs, and print ephemera in this field. He and his Rose Library colleagues have sought to ensure the African American voice is represented and have given priority to African American-authored and African American-published material. The exhibition highlights treasures in the collections and Burkett’s stories of their discovery and acquisition.

07:30PM 07:30PM Spring Play: Ada and the Engine: School: Oxford College Department / Organization: Oxford College Building/Room: Tarbutton Performing Arts Center Cost: $5/person Contact Name: Danielle Dockery Contact Email: danielle.dockery@emory.edu Oxford College will present the play "Ada and the Engine" by Lauren Gunderson. Ada Byron is a curious young woman and mathematician who is being pushed for a prestigious marriage by her mother, who is hoping to repair their damaged reputation set by the late Lord Byron, Ada’s father. However, when Ada meets Charles Babbage, her interest is spiked. He seems like her perfect match – he’s a scholar and a dreamer, but their age difference prevents their friendship from becoming anything more. Despite Ada’s marriage to Lord Lovelace, Babbage’s model of the Analytical Engine creates a long-lasting partnership between the two scientists that causes their deplored love for each other to be kept aflame. The cast and technical crew, composed entirely of students, is directed by Nick Fesette. Jessie Rivers coordinates the sets, lighting, and sound. Tickets are $5 per person. Reserve your tickets at oxford.emory.edu/oxboxoffice. Post-show discussions to be held March 1 and 22. This play is presented as part of a special exhibition "Reviving Ada." Presented in conjunction with the Atlanta Science Festival, this interactive gallery features multi-media displays curated by Oxford students celebrating female contributions to math and science. The gallery will be Feb. 28-March 23 in Tarbutton Lobby. This is an Oxford Studies event. + Oxford College Campus Events
