In February, Pamela Lopez presented at the 13th annual Alumni of Color Conference, hosted by the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Lopez was the first applicant from FIU ever selected to participate, and one of only a few undergraduates. Of over 500 participants, 90% were Harvard affiliates and 95% were postgraduates. Lopez’ contribution to the conference, the theme of which was The Other Narrative: Celebrating Untold Stories, was a 45-minute lecture that included case studies and original poetry concerning the culture of violence in ostracized minorities. Pam’s attendance was made possible by a generous gift from an anonymous Honors supporter.
