Regarding the “racially and ethnically diverse group” of admits to the Class of 2024, 61 percent of whom, according to Dean of Admission Karen Richardson ’93, self-identified as “people of color,” I was reminded of Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 dream “that [his] four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Dean Richardson and her admissions staff apparently didn’t get King’s message.
