-- President Mary Schmidt Campbell, Ph.D.

Award-winning author, activist and alumna Alice Walker returned to her alma mater Oct. 3-5 as a Mellon artist-in-residence, inspiring a new generation of Spelman women with exhortations to speak their truth, pursue their passions and unapologetically be themselves.

While her discussion on the role of the arts in activism resonated with students, so did her kind spirit, warm hugs and unblinking candor in sharing the trials and triumphs she faced on her professional and personal journey.
