Alison Stewart '88 was recently featured on MSNBC and published her new book First Class: The Legacy of Dunbar, America's First Black Public High School. The book tells the story of how Dunbar High School in Washington, DC, defied the odds and, in the process, changed America. In the first half of the twentieth century, Dunbar was an academically elite public school, despite being racially segregated by law and existing at the mercy of racist congressmen who held the school’s purse strings. These enormous challenges did not stop the local community from rallying for the cause of educating its children.

The legacy of Roland Laird ’82 was recently honored during the Black Alumni Reunion 2013. Mr. Laird co-founded the New York chapter of Brown’s Inman Page Black Alumni Council. Since 2006, he enabled twenty-two middle- and high school students from the New York and Atlanta areas to spend a summer taking courses at Brown. He raised funds, gave these teenagers advice, made sure they had enough clothes, and drove many of them to campus, sometimes along with their parents, says Robin Rose, Senior Associate Dean for Continuing Studies.

A specific targeted effort is taking place to foster the growth of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) to ensure that membership is supported and a close integration with the School of Engineering's growth plan exists. The School is committed to working closely with NSBE to expand and support membership, increase ties with alumni, and solidify collaborative relationships with other student organizations in order to provide NSBE students with the best possible networking and create a strong presence at the School. Help with mentoring, networking, events (speakers, job talks), and graduate diversity fellowships are also key areas we would like to see grow in the coming years.

...I had similar emotions last night because everyone I met was a superstar! Medical leaders, foundation heads, deans, and presidents…I tell you, it really felt good. That’s one thing I wanted to emphasize - the joy of seeing so many superstars, just casual brothers and sisters ‘taking care of business'.
