Tags Emerson Grant History
A documentary film screening of Fighting For America: The Reflections of Black WWII Veterans, a film produced by Susan Perham ’12, will take place on Friday, April 30, at 4 p.m., in the Bradford Auditorium (formerly known as the Kirner-Johnson Auditorium, KJ 125). The film was produced as part of Perham’s summer 2009 Emerson Fellowship titled “Oneida County’s African American WWII Veterans,” which she worked on under the advisement of Professor of History Esther Kanipe. The screening is free and open to the public.

Created in 1997, the Emerson Foundation Grant program was designed to provide students with significant opportunities to work collaboratively with faculty members, researching an area of interest. The recipients, covering a range of topics, explore fieldwork, laboratory and library research, and the development of teaching materials.
