Alumni Spotlight: Michael Ivory Jr. '18

An alumnus ponders whether the university is really ready to reckon with its past.

The problem of racism is a problem of roots. It is just as much a question of what nourishes life as we know and understand it, as it is about what antagonizes so many people's right to live. Racism is often spoken of as a barrier. Too infrequently is it addressed as something that enables and permits.
