Join us for “The Making–and Unmaking–of a Racist” on Feb 7
Williams College Prof of History, Charles Dew ’58, grew up in the Jim Crow South. During a presentation that mirrors his recently published book, we’ll learn how “natural” racial prejudice came to his otherwise loving, close family, and how his consciousness & conscience were raised over the course of his four years at Williams.
After recapping the antecedents of his transformation, Dr. Dew will be interviewed by former National Urban League President & Amherst grad, Hugh Price ’63. As interlocutor, Mr. Price will engage Prof. Dew in a dialogue that promises to expand on this sensitive, yet profound and compelling subject.
Club Members: Free Member Guests: $ 15
Amazing alum profile: Charles Dew’s older brother attended Williams, as did Hugh Price’s daughter; and so did his wife’s father, brother, & uncle! Moreover, five of Hugh Price’s relatives graduated from Amherst. So its 6 for 6!
