A Tribute to Perry House

Posted April 30th, 2015 at 10:20 am.

The Perry House Committee invites the Bryn Mawr community to A Tribute to Perry House this Saturday, May 2, at 2 p.m.. If you plan to attend and have not yet RSVPd, please fill out this brief form so that we know how many people to expect. Event will take place on the Perry House grounds (rain site Ely Room, Wyndham Alumnae House).

We will gather on the grounds of the original Perry House (rain site: Ely Room, Wyndham Alumnae House). President Kim Cassidy, former Associate Chief Information Officer and Equal Opportunity Officer Florence Goff, Nia Turner ’05 and current students Khadijah Seay and Danielle Cadet will offer remarks and reflections. Attendees will be encouraged to mingle and share memories at a reception immediately following.

Attendees are also invited to participate in “Black at Bryn Mawr,” a 60-minute walking tour created by Emma Kioko ’15 and Grace Pusey ’15. The tour, which will leave Thomas Hall at 4 p.m., offers a new history of the experiences of Black students, faculty, and staff at the College since its founding. (We suggest practical shoes–approximately 10 minutes of the tour takes place on a wooded trail.) Let us know your intention to participate in “Black at Bryn Mawr” on the registration form.

The committee invites you to visit and contribute to the Perry House blog and to use the hashtag #ProjectPerry to share memories, photos, name suggestions for the new space, etc. via Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
