Founded in 1985, the Ankh has served as a vehicle of expression and empowerment for Wesleyan’s students, faculty, and staff of color. Each semester, the Ankh puts together a publication composed and compiled entirely by people of color at Wesleyan and beyond.
The Ankh has taken different forms over the years, ranging from online blogs to physical publications. We are constantly changing. This website is an extension of our print publication, and a platform for mediums that we otherwise could not include—video, music, spoken word. If you’ve created a film, send it to us. If you recorded a performance or concert, we want to share it. If you wrote something that needs to be published right away, we can do that for you now. This website is the result of years of work by people of color, both at Wesleyan and beyond our campus, and we hope that it will continue to grow as an archive.
The Ankh is a safe, open space for student of color expression. Our goal is to voice a wide range of experiences, and build trust and community. If this is something that interests you, consider joining our staff. If you’ve created something and want to share it with others, do it here. The Ankh is your space.
In love and solidarity, The Ankh Staff
