WABI features Williams Hall mural, dedication
WABI-TV (Channel 5 in Bangor) featured the mural and dedication of Williams Hall to Beryl Warner Williams, the first Black alumna of the University of Maine. “She has been committed from the earliest days as far as I can tell from reading her history and learning about her to making a difference in the world. To honor an African American woman in this way at the university of Maine, is critical and important to send the message that inclusion is what we are about at the university. We look at all of our alums and find places where we can celebrate their great success and this is one of those,” said UMaine President Joan Ferrini-Mundy.
