Mudd’s main library center has been renamed to honor renowned feminist and civil rights activist Mary Church Terrell, OC 1884. Terrell was a founding member of the National Association of Colored Women and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The renaming ceremony took place last Saturday, Oct. 6 as part of Oberlin President Carmen Twillie Ambar’s inauguration festivities. An exhibit honoring Terrell and her work is currently on display in Mudd library. In the coming months, visitors should expect to see redecoration and renovation in Mudd to accompany the name change.
