#HFGather: Free Online Sessions

#HFGather: Free Online Sessions

#HFGatherWhen the COVID pandemic required everyone to stay home, we began #HFGather, a series of free online sessions to help us stay connected during that time. What we discovered is that we don’t need to be on campus to feel our community. As our #HFGather host Sarah Aronson says: “We know how to make community even when we can’t be together.”

We decided to host at least one #HFGather every month in 2021. Here’s the list of dates and topics, which we will update as we continue our planning:

  • January 2021: Sarah Aronson in conversation with George Brown about 2021 Programs and Scholarships.
    Watch it here.
  • February 2021: The Brown Bookshelf Presents Amplify Black Stories, Opening Celebration of Stories, Programs, and Commitment. Watch it here.
  • March 24
