An Indiana University alumna and an Indianapolis leader in education, libraries and history, Wilma Moore’s impact was felt in several institutions — IUPUI, the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center at Indiana University, the Indiana Historical Society and Indianapolis public libraries, just to name a few.
Announced about four months after her April 18 death, Moore’s memory will be honored with the Wilma Gibbs Moore Graduate Endowed Scholarship with the goal of making libraries more diverse.
“Mrs. Moore dedicated her life to building a more inclusive history, and, in recognition of that and the 50th anniversary of IUPUI, we would like to keep her legacy alive by building a more inclusive profession in her honor,” said Andrea Copeland, chair of the Department of Library and Information Science.
