Gayle Anderson returns to the Bowers Museum and its new exhibition Everest: Ascent to Glory. In conjunction with the exhibition, which illustrates the story of five expeditions leading up to and including the earliest successful attempts to climb the colossal mountain, the museum has been a supporter and a fundraiser for the Full Circle Everest Team.

Full Circle Everest Team leader Philip Henderson reports seven members of the team and their Sherpa team have made history as the first all-Black climbing team to summit Mount Everest. The team reports reaching the summit of the world’s highest mountain Thursday, May 12.
