Black Perspectives, the award-winning blog of the African American Intellectual History Society (AAIHS), is hosting an online forum honoring the life and work of Dr. Rosalyn Terborg-Penn, a pioneering scholar in the field of Black women’s history and co-founder of the Association of Black Women Historians (ABWH). Contributors explore the impact Terborg-Penn had on their individual careers — mentoring, influencing, and inspiring numerous scholars of Black history as a professor and leader at Morgan State University.
