Celebrating Black History Month and Women’s History Month, a window display on the first floor of the IUP Libraries includes photographs from many IUP publications, including catalogs, commencement programs, IUP Magazine, and IUP yearbooks.

The earliest photograph is of Bianca Parker, who went to school here in the 1890s. The daughter of a former slave, she was the first women in her family to go to college.
