Welcome to Wellesley Alumnae of African Descent
Connect with each other and the College based our common identities and shared experiences at Wellesley and in the world. Alums of African descent from all class years and across the diaspora are welcome to join us. We look forward to bringing everyone together and sharing Wellesley bonds.
In Mighty Justice, trailblazing African American civil rights attorney Dovey Johnson Roundtree recounts her inspiring life story that speaks movingly and urgently to our racially troubled times.
Check out this e-book to learn more about Wellesley trailblazers - from 1880's through 1950's, including the stories of several Black alumnae.
Local engagement is a cornerstone of WAAD, and our Regional Representatives are key to making that happen. We’re looking for alums to step forward in the New England, Northeast, Central, and West regions.
Alumnae play an important role in Admissions. Students of all backgrounds can attest to the influence an alum had on their decision to apply to and attend Wellesley. And we know how crucial the connections with alumnae of color can be to Black, Native American and Latina prospects.
