Sited on the Web: Penn National Commission; Black History

At the Penn National Commission on Society, Culture and Community's site,, browsers find a brief description of the Commission's work, lists the Commission's members and staff and links to additional information such as President Rodin's keynote remarks to the Commission's first meeting (Almanac 12/10/96) and press coverage. The site is to be updated frequently, according to Dr. Stephen Steinberg, Executive Director of the Commission.

For Black History Month, the University Archives highlights notable African American alumni of the University, with portraits and thumbnail biographies of nineteenth- and early twentiety-century graduates of the College and of graduate and professional schools at Penn. It has links to other pages of interest including African American programs and resources at Penn.
