SU Exhibits Celebrate Women's History

Weaving the Story of Women's LivesSALISBURY, MD---Gloria Richardson. Clara Gunby. These women are well known on the Eastern Shore — and beyond — for their roles in history.

Salisbury University students pursuing their M.A. in history take a look at the lives of these women and others in two exhibits celebrating Women’s History Month.

From March 1-31, the exhibit “Weaving the Story of Women’s Lives” in Blackwell Library focuses on Richardson, whose work in Cambridge, MD, during the Civil Rights Movement drew national attention. Artura Jackson researched and designed the display, “Who Do We Remember? Who Do We Forget? Gloria Richardson, Civil Rights Leader.” Also on exhibit is a display promoting SU’s Women’s History Month speakers.

The exhibit “Women’s History Student Showcase” is featured at SU’s Edward H. Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture Gallery, 190 Wayne Street, from March 23-May 15.

Displays include “Clara Gunby: Eastern Shore Hero or Traitor?” by Hallie Kroll, focusing on the Fruitland, MD, native turned confederate sympathizer and spy during the Civil War; “Women on the Eastern Shore During World War II” by Julie Messick; and “The Secret Sexual Revolution at Salisbury University in the 1960s and 1970s” by Emily Depasse.
