  1. Dear Jacqueline,

    I actually used your “College News” article on the Black Arts Celebration a few weeks back in the class I am teaching this semester, Higher Education for Women: Bryn Mawr and Beyond (http://historyb332.blogs.brynmawr.edu) and we have a few pieces of paper in the archives from the 1968 event. I’d like to talk further–this is an important moment and we’re hoping to begin collecting oral histories with the Black alumnae next academic year.

    If you’d be interested in talking more, I can be reached directly at mmercado [at] brynmawr [dot] edu
