Elevating the Stories of Black Women: Dr. Virginia Alexander and Shirley Chisholm

The University of Kentucky Center for Health Equity Transformation is hosting the next event in its 2022-2023 Elevating Equity Speaker Series, co-sponsored by Anthem BlueCross and BlueShield Medicaid, the Gaines Center for the Humanities, and the Commonwealth Institute for Black Studies. Join us for a conversation with Dr. Vanessa Northington Gamble and Dr. Anastasia Curwood about the lives of Dr.

We wish to remember and honor those who inhabited this Commonwealth before the arrival of the Europeans. Briefly occupying these lands were the Osage, Wyndott tribe, and Miami peoples. The Adena and Hopewell peoples, who are recognized by the naming of the time period in which they resided here, were here more permanently. Some of their mounds remain in the Lexington area, including at UK’s Adena Park.

In more recent years, the Cherokee occupied southeast Kentucky, the Yuchi southwest Kentucky, the Chickasaw extreme western Kentucky and the Shawnee central Kentucky including what is now the city of Lexington. The Shawnee left when colonization pushed through the Appalachian Mountains. Lower Shawnee Town ceremonial grounds are still visible in Greenup County.

We honor the first inhabitants who were here, respect their culture, and acknowledge the presence of their descendants who are here today in all walks of life including fellow pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
