About

Please support the important legacy of Lucinda Phillips, who was a slave until she and her family came west from Kentucky in the late 1860s on one of the first trains to Cheyenne. She grew one of the city's first gardens, bought and sold property, was an active member of the community, and helped to build the African Methodist Episcopal Church.

We are working to establish an endowed faculty fellowship, the Lucinda "Lucy" Phillips Fellow. We are dedicated to sharing her story and to establishing opportunities for junior faculty members to share their expertise as part of the Honors College, the Gender and Women Studies Program, the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, and the Department of Theatre and Dance.

We are excited to honor of the legacy of this pioneering pillar of the Wyoming community. Thank you for your support!
