Lee Sproull provided her annual report on our organization. Her full newsletter details how the Club and College are adapting to the realities of the moment.
A group of 18 alums came together on June 19 to reflect on matters of systemic racism. Alicia Lopez Nieto '91, Justice/Service Chair, led the conversation which was structured around the article, "White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack", by Peggy McIntosh, senior scientist with the Wellesley Centers for Women. Personal experiences were explored in small breakout groups before Martha Hanner ’63 closed the meeting by reading Langston Hughes’ poem Let America Be America Again.
