The University unveiled the African-American Hall of Fame on October 1, 1994, as a part of the University of Tennessee’s Bicentennial celebration. The Hall of Fame, housed in the Frieson Black Cultural Center, recognizes African-Americans who have made profound contributions to African-Americans at the University of Tennessee.
Their achievements are an inspiration to all of what dedication, persistence, and the personal pursuit of excellence can contribute to the whole of humanity.
Dr. Carolyn Hodges, Professor Emerita Department of Modern Foreign Languages & Literatures is the 2019 African-American Hall of Fame inductee. She will be honored in an induction ceremony at 9:30 to 10:30 am, on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2019, at the Frieson Black Cultural Center, 1800 Melrose Avenue, on the University of Tennessee’s Knoxville campus.
