Harvard Black Alumni Weekend 2014

14 Schools, Generations of Alumni, Reuniting as One – that was the amazing theme of the Harvard Black Alumni Weekend. From October 10th through 12th, 2014, I reconnected with friends, met new colleagues, learned interesting things – all in one of my most nostalgic places. Being in Cambridge brings me back to my college and graduate school days. I love the New England environment and have a great fondness for the Harvard community.
