Fall 2016 Hortense Parker Celebration "Remembering the Past, Engaging in the Present, Transforming your Future"

Oct. 14, 2016 4:30 pm
Chapin Auditorium

Mount Holyoke continues to celebrate the legacy of not only Hortense Parker, but all Mount Holyoke College students of color annually during the Hortense Parker Celebration which is sponsored by the SGA Students of Color Committee.
