The Activities, Leadership, and Intercultural (ALI) office at Salem College is pleased to present the first two speakers for the Spring 2021 “At the Intersections: A conversation with womxn on gender and race” in February.
Leading our series off this semester is recent Salem graduate, Camille Woods. In her time at Salem, Camille was a campus leader involved in many organizations. Perhaps her most notable contributions were her leadership in Salem’s Fun, Fit February program, her work as a member of the Salem Ghost Ryders, and her engagement as an Orientation Leader. She was also involved in Black Americans Demonstrating Unity (BADU). Camille will be sharing her story with Salem on February 17 at 7 p.m.
Our second speaker is Jennifer King, whose career is marked by many firsts. In 2019, King worked the football season at Dartmouth College where she worked with the wide receivers and assisted with offensive quality control for the 2019 Ivy League Champions. While at Dartmouth, King became the first black female to coach in a NCAA Division I game. Recently, King again distinguished herself following the 2020 professional football season, when she was promoted to Assistant Running Backs coach for the Washington Football Team making her the first black female position coach in NFL history. Jennifer will be sharing her story with Salem on February 24 at 7 p.m.
The ALI office is centering on Black women for the “At the Intersections” speakers this February in celebration of Black History Month and are pleased that our first two speakers both represent history in the making.
Links to join the events will be sent as part of students’ weekly Virtually Salem emails. We look forward to seeing you there.
