Appreciating My Role in Spelman College's Legacy of Educating Black Women

Today is the 132nd anniversary of the founding of Spelman College, pictured above in 1884 and 2012. While I did not attend Spelman (shout out to Howard University), I'm a native of Atlanta and spent many years attending various programs and events on this campus and others in the Atlanta University Center.

Class of 1892

Seeing women of African descent excelling intellectually and culturally has always had a profound impact on my development. After years editing consumer magazines, I never had any idea that I would end up in higher education. But I am so proud - and thankful - to work at Spelman and support the important mission of this incredible institution.
