A Conversation with Jason Williams: Maryland's First Varsity African American Athlete

Tuesday, September 25th at 2:30 pm in the Student Involvement Suite

This event is a chance to learn about this exceptional University of Maryland graduate and also interact with other student leaders! Jason Williams was the first African American varsity athlete at the University of Maryland. He was a member of the swimming and diving team, graduating in 1966. Mr. Williams was a child of Baltimore who began his interest in diving and swimming in the pool at Clifton Park. He won the city’s Baltimore City Diving Championship in 1962 which led him to Maryland. From his time in the Air Force ROTC at Maryland, Jason went on to serve in the U.S. Air Force. His undergraduate major in Advertising and Applied Design and Business would eventually lead to a career that included a role as Director of Los Angeles County’s Department of Building Services and later as an administrator for the Los Angeles County’s Department of Health Services. As Mr. Williams reflects on his time in college, he will tell stories of traveling with the Maryland team in states, including North Carolina, where he would be treated with respect on campus but would be denied service at restaurants because of the color of his skin. He will also reflect on what it was to bear witness to the 1966 NCAA Final Four in Cole Fieldhouse when Texas Western – an almost entirely African American team – claimed the NCAA championship. This event was captured in the movie Glory Road. Please join us in this event on Tuesday, September 25 at 2:30 p.m. Maryland Ice Cream will be served at the program. If you would like more information on the event, please email me at mguenzle@umd.edu .

Stamp Gallery presents Pink is a Color That Feels Like Love, guest curated by Philadelphia based independent curator Katy Scarlett. The exhibition brings together three artists, Damien Davis, Brandon Dean, and Delano Dunn, whose work is deeply invested in the formal use of color paired with recognizable motifs in order to reflect on issues of representation. The artists address stereotypes related to race, gender, sexuality, and class, figuring color imbued with broader cultural meaning as a central subject in order to critique dominant paradigms.


Opening reception, open and free to the public: August 29, 6PM - 8PM.  Light refreshments will be served


Exhibition on view: August 29 - October 6
