Celebrating Gilman’s First Black Alumni
A weekend 50 years in the making took place in October 2018: the commemoration of the first black students to graduate from Gilman in 1968, and a celebration of the more than 480 black alumni who have followed.
This commemorative video, which premiered at the Recognition Dinner, was created to give historical context to the integration of Gilman School. It features interviews with many of the trailblazers who made it happen.
