Thanks to all who created this fitting tribute to an amazing woman! I was fortunate to know her though my 12 years in the Education Department at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art. Dr. Hilliard-Nunn was always extremely generous sharing her time and talents in programs at the Harn Museum whenever invited. Participants and visitors at Harn Family Days, Teacher Institutes, Docent Training, and Museum Nights, and so many other events, benefited from Trisha's expertise and warmth. She will be remembered always with love!

Having been away from Dr. Hilliard-Nunn’s light for so many years, I am so grateful for the photos, videos, and tributes—especially from Tiffany and Keturah. Thank you for bringing Dr. Hilliard-Nunn back into our homes, especially for those of us who have been away for so long. It’s hard to find adequate words for Dr. Hilliard-Nunn, but I can say that being just one of her thousands of students at UF has been the honor and privilege of my life. To learn so much from her academically and about how to be a servant leader, a community member, and a loving spirit. Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything, Dr. Hilliard-Nunn. Endless thanks.

Now I am smiling while I am watching her dance and seeing how everyone else enjoyed it. I felt embarassed to dance, but now I am glad I she made me do it. She loved spreading joy and making others smile. She loved us all and we loved her.

Growing up under the wings of her father, Asa Hilliard, his brother Tommy, her mother and a community of Afrocentric scholars and friends Patricia was filled with love for her African heritage and a desire to share that love and knowledge to everyone she met. As Patricia travels through the hall of Amenti and declares her innocence, may her ship arrive safely in the West. Hotep!

Would you believe – Trish was an important part of the local AAUW (Am. Assoc. of Univ. Women). She joined because one of HER mentors was a member, Germaine Phillip. She was soon to be an important part of our state program regarding affirmative action and race relations. -- My own interests in international folk dancing was another one of our connections. -- We so miss her being and her scholarship.

On behalf of the City of Newberry, I would like to thank Dr. Nunn for all her work to preserve Newberry’s history, all parts of our history. Without her, we wouldn’t be able to address the crimes of our past. We wouldn’t know the truth, and reconciliation would be all but impossible. Newberry owes a tremendous debt to Dr. Nunn: one that we cannot repay. She will always live in the work that carries on in her name. Thank you, and Rest In Peace, Dr. Nunn.
Brenda Chambliss
