The University of Illinois at Chicago's College of Nursing, the Midwest Nursing History Research Center, and the editorial team would like to express its sincerest gratitude to theGaylord and Dorothy Donnelly Foundationfor its support of this project to recover Black nurses' narratives with a publicly accessible, Black-centered history of nursing in Chicago. We are very humbled and extremely privileged to have been one of the ten projects funded by their groundbreaking "Broadening Narratives" grant initiative to illuminate underrepresented storiesin Chicago and the lowcountry of South Carolina.
"This project marks a pivotal moment as we work to recognize and celebrate Black nursing history, revealing narratives of Chicago's Black nurses . . . The Donnelley Foundation is helping us remake history, and for that, we are forever grateful."-Gwyneth R. Franck, Director, Midwest Nursing History Research Center
Finally, this project would not have been possible without the courageous and informative narratives provided by the following twenty-one heroic Black nurses. Their willingness to share their stories of hardship and triumph not only informed the project but served as its very foundation.
