Anthropology graduate Jessica Bertram (BA, Anthropology and Human Biology/Dance & Movement Studies) receives Alan Rackoff Prize for her dance project “She fell, but felt no fear.”

Bertram based her project on research done in the Rose Manuscripts, Archives, and Rare Book Library at Emory. “I collected a lot of African American materials such as photos, scrapbooks, newspaper clippings, books, poems, obituaries and music selections ranging from the late 1800s to the late 1900s.”

She was also selected to perform at the American College Dance Association Conference with Cherry Fung. For more, visit the Emory News Center.
