In May 2012 the BFSA, Johns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels and Johns Hopkins External Affairs and Development launched “The Indispensable Role of Blacks at Johns Hopkins” exhibit. The exhibit gives a glimpse into the intertwined history of Blacks and Johns Hopkins.The current exhibit and website was a continuation of an earlier BFSA project, "History of African Americans @ JHU," which was active from 2003-2008. Both projects were designed to recognize Black students, faculty and staff who have contributed to this institution’s rich history and who have brought honor to the institution through their achievements. The Indispensable Role of Blacks at Johns Hopkins traveling and website exhibit was launched spring, 2012 and was displayed at all of the Johns Hopkins campuses. The individuals who were featured in the exhibit were honored at the 2012 BFSA’s annual Juneteenth Celebration.
