  • Wednesday, Alison Harrison Goodyear ’29 Fellow Dr. Marcia Chatelain drew upon the history of civil rights, inclusive pedagogy, public service, and the importance of community to inspire us to speak up, take action for social issues, and engage on behalf of the greater good.

    We Still Have a Choice to Use Our Voice for Good

    “We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late. Procrastination is still the thief of time. Life often leaves us standing bare, naked and dejected with a lost opportunity. The ‘tide in the affairs of men’ does not remain at the flood; it ebbs. We may cry out desperately for time to pause in her passage, but time is deaf to every plea and rushes on… We still have a choice today; nonviolent coexistence or violent co-annihilation.”Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Using this poignant quote as a framework for her presentation to the Foxcroft community, Dr. Marcia Chatelain, Professor of History and African American Studies at Georgetown University and 2020 Alison Harrison Goodyear ’29 Fellow, drew upon the history of civil rights, inclusive pedagogy, and public service to talk about speaking up, engaging on behalf of the greater good, and taking action for social issues, as well as ideas and thoughts around community, ultimately sharing her belief that Dr. King’s entire quote, but particularly the final sentence, is as true today as it was in 1967.

  • Marcia Chatelain, PhD, to Address the Importance of Community During Challenging Times

    First 2020-21 Goodyear Fellow slated to keynote via Zoom Wednesday, September 2 at 11am
    Admission is free; space is limited — please RSVP to advancement@foxcroft.org

    Professor of History and African American Studies at Georgetown University Dr. Marcia Chatelain has been named the first Alison Harrison Goodyear ’29 Fellow for the 2020-21 academic year. Focusing on Foxcroft’s academic theme for the year — “Use Your Voice for Good: Civic Engagement and Social Action” — Chatelain’s keynote entitled, “Where Do We Go From Here,” will draw from current events as well as her own personal history of growing up during a period of civil unrest. She takes inspiration from Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1967 book with the same title, in which he asks if the world will move toward chaos or community. She will focus on the importance of community to challenge, motivate, and sustain us during periods of uncertainty, embracing the idea of the greater good, cultivating your voice, and caring for each other as a means to move us toward community during these difficult times.
