Twin Memorials Project

Twin Memorials Project

Category : News/Events

Emory is committed to honoring and memorializing the untold experiences, stories, and contributions of enslaved individuals and their descendants who lived and worked on the university’s original campus in Oxford, Georgia. Emory’s Twin Memorials Working Group is creating a plan for twin memorials that articulates and interconnects the
shared histories of the Emory and Oxford campuses.

The first, and most important, step in this process is to hear from the community. In addition to Emory students, faculty, staff, and alumni, the university seeks input from descendants, neighbors, and local community members.

Emory has engaged the firm Baskervill to guide the community-engagement and design process. To learn more about the complex history of Emory’s founding and participate in conceptualizing a design for the memorials, please RSVP to the session below.

Through this work, and especially through your involvement, Emory begins the journey toward a more just and inclusive community.
