2020 Graduates

Tangela Mitchell, C’2020

Tangela Mitchell, a political science major, will shift literary culture through the creation of an international publication and the performance of her poetry. She will create bold, salient, and truthful work that distills the multifaceted experiences within the African diaspora and further extols our collective histories. She will join the ranks of the accomplished Black women poets before her, all while creating space for young Black creatives who will follow her.
