Barnard-Columbia Alumni Reunion Jam 2018
Open to Columbia University alumni from all schools, affiliates, and generations, The “Jam” was originally the reunion of Black and Latino men and women who attended Barnard College and Columbia College in the 1960s and 1970s, who became the “foundational classes” on whose shoulders subsequent generations of students of color stand.
Join the party this reunion weekend with old school jams played live by Columbia classmate James “Plunky” Branch and his band Plunky and Oneness
As we commemorate the 50th anniversary of Columbia’s 1968 student uprising, we also honor the foundational classes of color – recognizing Rachelle “Viki” Browne, The Honorable Walter Rivera, and Steven “Noah” Sims for their commitment, with in person tributes by Efraim Nieves, Esq., Ellen Holder Honeywell and Eric H. Holder, Jr., 82nd Attorney General of the United States.
Jam 2018 is brought to you in collaboration:
Make a charitable contribution to the Black Alumni Council Scholarship Fund for undergraduate education.
