Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to join The Alumni Association for a fun and educational travel opportunity to Washington, D.C. Faculty, staff and students can meet with alumni and friends of the university during this educational weekend March 10–12. The African American Alumni Association will host this opportunity.
The weekend will include an opportunity to tour the national Museum of African American History and Culture on Saturday morning. On Friday, guests will hear from Elaine Nichols (SAS ’80) supervisory museum curator, who will share information about her career journey and her experiences at the Smithsonian. Guests also can hear from Bettye C. W. Kearse (MED ’79), who will share the story behind her multiple award-winning book, The Other Madisons: The Lost History of A President’s Black Family. This intimate memoir discloses and embraces a more inclusive and complete American story. Following the discussion, Kearse will present her interactive TEDx talk, titled “I AM.”
Space is limited on this trip and if you want to stay at the JW Marriott Washington, the room block closes Feb. 3.
