US Students Hear Personal Stories from Historically Black Fraternity & Sorority Members

For Black History/Futures Month, the Upper School held an assembly where students learned about the Divine Nine, a group of historically Black fraternities and sororities, through the personal stories of Calhoun parents and community members. The panelists spoke about the creation, importance and influence of Black Greek organizations in higher education and beyond. As Lusta Phanoud P'24, a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., explained, "When we weren't accepted in other spaces, we made space for each other." The students loved hearing the panelists' perspectives and learned valuable lessons they can use in their futures.
