25th Anniversary of the African American Hall of Fame and Induction Ceremony

As a part of the University of Tennessee’s Bicentennial celebration, on October 1, 1994, the University unveiled the African American Hall of Fame. 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.

Hall of Fame inductees have contributed years of demonstrated service, scholarship, and development in their respective fields. They also have had a significant impact on issues of diversity and inclusion and played a significant leadership role in the advancement of issues related to African Americans at UT, in Knoxville, and within the state of Tennessee.

Such achievements serve as inspiration to all that each person can make a contribution through dedication, persistence, and the pursuit of excellence. In honor of this prestigious accolade, we induct Dr. Carolyn Hodges.
