The Color of Freedom: Honoring the Diversity of America's Servicewomen
In a unique opportunity to celebrate Black History Month and the 100th anniversary of women students at Virginia Tech, the Military Women's Memorial will bring the special traveling exhibition "The Color of Freedom: Honoring the Diversity of America's Servicewomen" to Newman Library.
The Blacksburg campus is the inaugural stop on the exhibition's tour, sponsored by Virginia Humanities. It will be on display through Feb. 28 on the library's fourth floor, across from the Corps of Cadets Museum space.
Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in the contributions of military women of color who have served throughout American history. It includes the stories of military servicewomen of color along with QR codes to access oral histories that provide firsthand accounts of select servicewomen featured in the exhibit.
The exhibition's goal is to build awareness of the sacrifices of women from diverse backgrounds who forged a path for women of all backgrounds to serve in and with the U.S. military.
