Third World Center Former Directors Panel

by galvarez@brown.edu on February 9th, 2011

We had the privilege of having five former directors of the Third World Center with us on Saturday (2/5).  Interim director Rev. William Mathis moderated a wonderful discussion with Calvin Hicks (1976-1978), Felipe Floresca ’73 (1978-1980), Dr. Robert G. Lee (1981-1985), Preston Smith II (1986-1988), and Karen E. McLaurin-Chesson ’74 (1993-2010).  They recounted a descriptive history of The Third World Center; the struggles, building of the community, and shifts that have occurred over the years.  They also provided useful advice to the Brown community and those involved with selecting the TWC’s next director.  Thank you to all who made this event possible!  It was truly an inspiring discussion!!!

    Wish I could have made it. I would have loved to hear their views on the history and legacy of the TWC.
