UK Libraries’ first-ever Undergraduate Diversity Scholar Interns have begun their year of work and learning. Ebony Davis and Nathan Moore will spend the 2014-2015 academic year immersed in UK Libraries, in addition to their studies as undergraduate students at UK. 

Ebony is a Family Studies major, with a minor in African-American and Africana Studies. She has been active in diversity efforts and education at UK, and is president of Zeta Phi Beta sorority.

Nathan presented a paper on folkloric influences in Harriet Jacobs’s Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (1861) at this year’s National Conference for Undergraduate Research (NCUR).  This  summer he was selected as one of only ten Fellows for the Schomburg-Mellon Summer Humanities Institute. Nathan is an English major, with a minor in African-American and Africana Studies.

Both Ebony and Nathan are seniors at UK.

Peter Hesseldenz, Young Library Reference, is serving as their supervisor.  The Undergraduate Diversity Scholar program is an initiative of the UK Libraries Diversity Task Force..
