The "Spotlight: Visionary Leadership" display features individuals who had the courage to tell their story, whether the story was one of survival or of determination. Each individual overcome great odds and became powerful advocates for change.
"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear."
The UI Cultural Houses and Resource Center managed by the Office of Student Life are fundamental in bringing to light issues that are important to African Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, Latinos and Native Americans and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender community. The “Spotlight Series” displays are meant to connect the library to the UI cultural houses and resource center. We encourage the UI community to explore the people and organizations represented in this display.
