Athlete. Scholar. Activist: Chapters in the Life of Dr. Pellom McDaniels

February 7, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Emory Libraries partners with the BronzeLens Film Festival for a screening of the film “Flash Here and There Like Falling Stars: The Life and Work of Dr. Pellom McDaniels III,” followed by a conversation.


The event honors the contributions of Pellom McDaniels III, former Emory professor of African American Studies and curator of African American collections at the Rose Library who passed away in April 2020. McDaniels, a former NFL player for the Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons who earned his master’s and PhD from Emory University, focused his life’s work on researching, collecting, and sharing the stories of African Americans throughout history.
