Honoring Dr. Fullwood [Dr. Dowdell]

I got the chance to go back to Gainesville to support Black Gator Grads in honoring a longtime faculty member and activist, during her years as a student and as a resident of Gainesville, Dr. Betty Fullwood.
She's finally retiring as as faculty member- and my fondest memories aren't from when we called her Dr. Dowdell during the minority program for freshmem, PAACT, but rather from talking to her one-on-one for a photo project for Blacklisted! I left her office with a sense of warmth, intelligence and selflessness that will be missed in her absence.
