Last night, residents, students, and attendings gathered to view Michelle Alexander speak in regard to her book, The New Jim Crow, and race in America today. Delicious Ethiopian food catered by Meskerem was enjoyed!
When asked about what keeps her hopeful, Alexander admitted that it’s hard to always be hopeful. But she has witnessed small groups of people around the world make miracles happen, do the seemingly impossible, and plant seeds for hope.
“Anything is possible, even against all odds.”Michelle Alexande
