The Women of Color Museum, which profiles dynamic personalities who have made significant contributions, was installed in Penn’s Inn (Bush Campus Center, second floor) earlier this week as part of the Office of Student Engagement’s observance of Women’s History Month. Tables lined with documents, artifacts and photos chronicled those touchpoints, instilling pride and increasing societal sensitivity and understanding.
