The Joseph Thomas Gier Memorial Dedication Ceremony
We invite you to recognize the profound contributions of Professor Joseph Thomas Gier to the University of California, the first tenured Black professor in the UC system. Sculptor Dana King unveiled a bronze statue in honor of Gier in the Blum Hall courtyard.
