Chapter Updates New events are being planned for the upcoming year. We hope you'll join us!
The Alumni Affairs Office and the Alumni Board are continuing efforts to increase engagement of alumni of color in the five-largest alumni chapters by designing events at popular venues. Significant progress has been made in Washington, D.C, including a sold-out event at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Event planning for the New York and Richmond chapters is underway.
In April, the Atlanta Chapter hosted a very successful event at ZuCot Gallery, which features works by African American artists. As the pictures below reflect, the event drew a diverse and sizable crowd to this unique space in the developing neighborhood near the new Mercedes Stadium. The gallery owner and Quincy Springs IV ’02, a civic leader and Chick-fil-A franchisee who previously led the launch of a Walmart in a diverse community, welcomed the group. Howard Pickett, assistant professor of ethics and poverty studies and director of the Shepherd Program, presented a slideshow on the Shepherd’s 20th anniversary.
