RESCHEDULED – Necessary Trouble: Drew Gilpin Faust & A’Lelia Bundles

Tuesday April 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

$35.00 – $80.00

Join us over dinner as award-winning journalist and author A’Lelia Bundles ’74 joins former Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust to discuss her latest book, Necessary Trouble: Growing Up at Midcentury.

A poignant, lovely memoir, Necessary Trouble recounts President Faust’s experiences as a privileged white girl in conservative, segregated Virginia, who was expected to adopt a willful blindness to the inequities of race and the constraints of gender, and her galvanizing inability to accept both female subordination and racial hierarchy. Despite her family’s (and society at large’s) urging to become “well adjusted” and fill the role of a poised young lady that her upbringing imposed, she found resistance was necessary for her survival. During the 1960s, through her love of learning and her active engagement in the civil rights, student, and antiwar movements, Drew forged a path of her own―one that would eventually lead her to become a historian of the very conflicts that were instrumental in shaping the world she grew up in, as well as a leader in the field of education, and the first female president of Harvard University.
