"Mining an American Story: Personal Reflections on Class Divide from President James Wright"

In an informal conversation with Genevieve Adams '11, President James Wright reflects on his upbringing in a rural mining community, his experiences as an American historian, his recent work with U.S. military veterans, America's challenges concerning economic class, and the impetus for Dartmouth's recent financial aid enhancements. Adams is a cast member of the theater department's current production of The Grapes of Wrath.

The event is part of Class Divide, a three-year, cross-campus/community programming initiative presented by the Hopkins Center for the Arts. "President Wright's life resonates with many of the initiative's concerns," notes Margaret Lawrence, director of programming for the Hopkins Center. "Diversity, of all sorts, is an important source of Dartmouth's strength," says Wright.  I am very pleased to be part of the College's conversation about class and economic diversity."
