Examining the Williams Way

 

On Feb. 4, the campus community took part in Claiming Williams, a day of conversations and questions around the topic “Examining the Williams Way.” The event, now in its seventh year, grew out of the student-led Stand With Us movement. This year, New Yorker staff writer Jelani Cobb delivered the keynote address, “The Half Life of Freedom: Race and Justice in America Today.” Workshops included a conversation about queer activism and a one-woman show by artist Kelsey Van Ert addressing the experiences of first-generation college students today.
