Join classmates to reconnect, reminisce, and renew Wellesley ties through Reunion 2021 virtual activities.

Friday, June 4

2:30-4:00 PM EDT - Speaker Kristina Niovi Jones, PhD, Director, Wellesley College Botanic Gardens; Advisory Faculty, Environmental Studies “From Victory Gardens to Climate Change: Wellesley’s Century of Collecting Plants to Big Issues of the Day"
Click to join at 2:30 pm EDT

3:00 PM EDT - Start with Art. Time Warp: The Hours of Jeanne d'Evreux, Queen of France.

Classmate Barbara Drake Boehm, Curator Emerita of the Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters, will share her perspective on the timeless resonance of this medieval masterpiece, over which she was privileged to preside as a senior curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Barbara will trace her own responses to the manuscript as they evolved over decades of research, informed and inflected by her education at Wellesley. Classmates, too, may find themselves unexpectedly awed by a queen of France whose reign ended nearly 800 years ago. 

Born in Columbus, Ohio, Barbara knew as a child that she wanted to be an art historian. After graduating from Wellesley, where she majored in history and art history, Barbara received her M.A. and Ph.D. from NYU's Institute of Fine Arts. An internationally renowned art historian, Barbara curated multiple exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art prior to her recent retirement. Among her many awards, she was elected an honored foreign member of the Societe Nationale des Antiquaires de France in 2003. She is the only American curator of this generation to have received this recognition.

3:00 PM EDT - Four Allegories: Tools for Naming Racism and Moving to Action. 

Presentation by classmate Camara Phyllis Jones, MD, MPH, PhD

Following her graduation from Wellesley, where she majored in molecular biology, Camara was a 1976-1977 Luce Scholar in the Philippines and then earned her M.D. at the Stanford University School of Medicine. After completing her General Preventive Medicine Residency at the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health (earning her MPH in the process) and her Family Medicine Residency at the Montefiore Medical Center, she returned to Johns Hopkins to earn her PhD in Epidemiology.

Camara's work focuses on naming, measuring, and addressing the impacts of racism on the health and well-bring of the nation and the world. She is a Past President of the American Public Health Association (2016) and was the 2019-2020 Evelyn Green Davis Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. She has served on the faculty of the Harvard School of Public Health, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Rollins School of Public Health and as a medical officer at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Camara has received numerous awards recognizing her extraordinary work and thought leadership, including the Wellesley Alumnae Achievement Award (2018). 

Camara will share four of her allegories on "race" and racism that illuminate topics that are otherwise difficult for many Americans to understand or discuss. Recognizing that racism saps the strength of the whole society through the waste of human resources, she aims to mobilize and engage all Americans in a National Campaign Against Racism.
