Making Knox Timeline

On the first day of the workshop, Dr. Cate Denial and Dr. Jen Andrella introduced a timeline to situate Knox College in a context of Native history, US history, and the history of slavery. The original timeline has been adapted into an interactive format below. If you wish to make a slide contribution to the timeline, request access to the timeline’s Google Sheet.
