SEEK History Project


The SEEK History Project documents the rich history of the Queens College Percy Ellis Sutton SEEK Program. The project was initiated in 2019 by Special Collections and Archives of the Queens College Library in partnership with the SEEK Program. The initiative is supported by Queens Memory, a local history project jointly sponsored by the Queens Public Library and Queens College.

The project consists of oral history interviews, archival records processing, and public programming, with a focus on the SEEK uprising of 1968/1969 as well as subsequent joys and challenges experienced by faculty, staff, and students of the program over its 55 year plus existence.

Project Staff:

  • Annie Tummino, Head of Special Collections and Archives, Project Director
  • Obden Mondesir, Oral Historian, 2019-2021
  • Reign McConnell, SEEK History Intern, fall 2019-spring 2020

This guide will be updated as more resources become accessible and as the project progresses.
