VIDEO: “I, Too, Am Harvard” Highlights Frustration Of Black Students In Predominately White Spaces

A play about the realities of black students at Harvard University debuts Friday at the Black Arts Festival on the Harvard campus.

"And this lesson must begin when alumni are students, during the first week of classes, and it needs to come directly from the president." One individual who has gotten the memo is Bennett College President Dr. Rosalind Fuse-Hall, who took the helm of her small liberal arts college in Greensboro,... Read More →
