Autumn Rose Williams Visits Park in Partnership with Office of DEI and Third Grade
Last week, activist and public speaker Autumn Rose Williams visited Park in partnership with our Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and our third grade teachers in an ongoing effort to expose students to first-hand experiences with the peoples and cultures that they are learning about.
While on campus, Williams first visited with a group of faculty representatives from Middle and Upper School. She shared her experiences as a Shinnecock woman attending a similar independent school in New York, and learned about the Park philosophy and our founding principles. She also shared stories of her work experience as well as her learnings of the First Thanksgiving story from a direct descendant of the Wampanoag peoples.
In the afternoon, Williams welcome
