Open Letter to Black Community


Open Letter to Black Community


This poem in the Afro-American Society publication Black Praxis calls for members of Dartmouth’s Black community to stand in solidarity with one another and for what is morally right in the fight for equality. The poem's co-authors Eileen Cave, Monica Hargrove, and Judi Redding also collaborated on the July 1975 publication “Institutional Racism and Student Life at Dartmouth,” known colloquially amongst Dartmouth administrators as the “Redding Report.”
