In First, Four Harvard Schools to be Led by Black Women
Portraits of Harvard’s former deans line the halls they once walked — at some schools, stretching back decades. The features change, as do the poses and the visibility of brush strokes. But the subjects of the portraits bear certain resemblances: most are white, and most are male.
That will soon change. Come August 15, for the first time in Harvard’s history, four of the University’s schools will be led by African-American women.
