Today was the first, soon-to-be-annual Graduate/Faculty brunch at my college. Graduating seniors who are connected to student clubs and/or student government invite faculty who they would like to say goodbye to. Thank you to Christina Berthaud and Chanel Smith for inviting me to be their guest today. We ended up talking way past the event until we got kicked out of the room when it was being prepped for the next function.
It was such a pleasure to sit and just talk with these young black women today, one off to law school and the other set for a career in public relations. Unbeknownst to me, I had heard of them before since their roommates had taken previous classes with me. Amazingly, these 8 black women met as assigned roommates in their freshmen year of college and pretty much stayed roommates (along with other freshmen dormmates) throughout their four years of college.
Congratulations CHANEL AND CHRISTINA on your gradation and for living, understanding, and so fully valuing sistahood. I wish you all the best and, of course, much much love and ongoing sistahood!
