Hopes for racial integration during the next 50 years


“I think we are fortunate to live in a place where we must confront our historical past each day. We have an opportunity that most universities don’t have in that we so recently have struggled to define who we are. This has been difficult, and we haven’t always been successful—but that is part of the struggle. With our mistakes, at least we are actively engaged. I feel as if we are fortunate to deal with these racial issues very directly and not be able to ignore or bury the past.”
