Voices and Visions is an invaluable resource as we continue to advocate for policies and procedures that can lead to a greater Black presence at Northwestern and a more inclusive culture on the campus. Kudos to Dr. Jeffrey Sterling and Lauren Lowery, co-founders of the Northwestern University Black Alumni Association Archives, for writing a book we have been waiting for. — Johnnetta Betsch Cole, Ph.D., Northwestern University graduate ’59 and ’67.
