This Dickinsonian article discusses the visit and lecture given by Dr Janice Hamlet, Director of Ethnic Studies at Shippensburg University, as part of the College's celebration of Women's History Week. Her speech "centered on the role of black feminist thought in modern society." Hamlet was introduced by Dickinson Senior Liz Torpey who said "We need more of an African-American dimension in our curriculum."
Tara McCallum, in hopes of aiding in the movement towards creating black awareness on Dickinson's campus, contributed to the monthly publication, The Black Perspective, published by the Congress of African Students.Â Her work appears in the April edition of the Perspective. McCallum has several creative poems published, all harkening back to the struggles of black individuals.
