Desegregation History Wall installation begins February 12th

Washington University School of Medicine and BJC HealthCare will soon unveil a permanent display highlighting the history of desegregation at WashU Medicine, Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital. The Desegregation History Wall will be located on the second-floor link of the BJC Institute of Health.

The wall depicts the historical experiences of Black and African American individuals on the Medical Campus and is part of ongoing efforts to ensure that our institutions and communities are places where all people feel included, are treated fairly and justly, and are recognized for their meaningful contributions.

Installation will begin on February 12 and continue through mid-March. The corridor will remain open during installation, with a partition to protect the construction area, reducing space for pedestrian traffic.
