Fayette Wimberly Collection

Through the collective efforts of the BCC Library, the Black Student Union, and our supportive faculty and staff we are pleased to announce the inception of the Fayette Wimberly Collection here in the Susan A. Duncan Library at Berkeley City College.  Dr. Wimberly taught history, political science, and African American Studies here at BCC (Vista) for over decade, with the last several years spent as instructor in the Program for Adult College Education (PACE).  The collection reflects her interests in these disciplines, as well as her work in anthropology and religious studies.

A Berkeley native, Dr. Wimberly earned her Ph.D. (as well as her bachelor’s and master’s degrees) at UC-Berkeley, where she also taught for several years.  Fay passed away unexpectedly on October 2, 2007 but those who she touched with her kindness and wit continue to cherish her memory.  The Fayette Wimberly Collection is a testament to her contribution to the Berkeley City College community so we encourage everyone to avail themselves of it.
