Valerie White presentation for Black History Month

Date: 12:00pm - 1:30pm PST February 25, 2015 Location: Gregg Pavilion

Gregg Pavilion

Greetings from the Ombuds Office.

Most of you know who I am and what I do as the Ombudsperson at Lewis & Clark.  I wanted to tell you about a last-minute thing I’m squeaking in before Black History Month ends.  

Last year I was invited to do a presentation at the Emeriti Faculty Lunch, An American Story: The Arc of US American History Across One Black Family.  It’s about my family and our connections to activities such as running blockades in the War of 1812, Underground Railroad, Ellis Island, Buffalo Soldiers, Tuskegee Airmen.  Several folks have asked if I would repeat the presentation (though I don’t think anyone meant short notice).

I’ll be in the Gregg Pavilion next Wednesday, February 25, noon-1:15-ish with my slides and remarks.  

Thanks for thinking about joining me if you can.

All best,
