Guest speakers will include Valerie Babb, Emory’s Andrew Mellon Professor of Humanities in African American Studies and English; Carol Henderson, Emory’s Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion, Chief Diversity Officer, and adviser to the University President; and Christell Roach, a poet and 2019 graduate of Emory University.

Burkett and Pellom McDaniels III; and its future, delving into the vision and plan for the new curator, and how it will be used by students, faculty, scholars, and the Atlanta community.
