Artist Diacon-Furtado
Natan Diacon-Furtado, 2021 Indiana University Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) Repository Research Fellow, collaborated with people from the archives of Wylie House Museum. In his exhibit, Our Patterns, the Orator, the Astronomer, and the Poet, viewers are invited to meet three of Indiana University’s “firsts.” They are Harvey Young, an outstanding orator and IU’s first Black student, along with poet Sarah Parke Morrison, the first woman to attend IU and later a professor of English. They are joined by Elizabeth Breckenridge, a Black woman who worked as a domestic servant in the Wylie home for many decades. She is the astronomer.
