DENTON WOMEN'S INTERRACIAL FELLOWSHIP MONUMENT

A Public Art Installation in the City of Denton Texas

 

HONORING THE LEGACY

Courage, Love, Sisterhood, Unity

A maverick group of black and white women forged friendships and strategies to ease Denton's transition toward racial integration during 1960s social upheaval. Bridging racial barriers with friendship and potlucks, the Denton Women's Interracial Fellowship (DWIF) helped smooth integration in Denton's formerly segregated public schools. Through coordinated action, they campaigned for racial justice and quality-of-life improvements for Denton's African American citizenry.

The DWIF Art Installation commemorates their legacy, giving a glimpse into a segregated past while celebrating great forward progress made possible by Denton's visionary foremothers.
