ANNOUNCEMENTS

A Civil Rights Memoir

See also the Class of '69 website if you are active there.

 

Matthew Rinaldi has published Fire at the Freedom House, which he’s worked on for over a decade.

It begins with the trip by Oberlin students to Mississippi with OACR during winter break in 1966, which one reviewer calls “very relevant” to current-day issues. “The Black residents of small-town Mississippi, working at the direction of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, overcame difficulties as they struggled with some white volunteers from the North to integrate businesses and do the work of voter registration.”  Many Oberlin classmates are included. 

The book can be ordered directly from any bookstore, and it’s also available from Amazon.

 

    

 

The Value of Oberlin Faculty

This week, The  Oberlin Review ran this article about faculty salaries.

https://oberlinreview.org/23665/news/oberlin-falling-behind-in-faculty-compensation-before-covid/

 

The same day, I received a copy of an article initiated by President Ambar's Chief of Staff,David Herz, publlished by the Committee on Environmental Sustainabilty, describing the College/Conservatory's many programs.

Mr. Herz was also the main author of the large article last week on the success of ObieSafe and the dedication demonstrated by  faculty in its execution over this past year and a half.

Oberlin 2020 Pandemic Story

President Ambar's Chief of Staff tells the story of Oberlin's leadership planning from March through Novermber of last year.  It is dramatic and detailed.

Members of the Classes of 1967 and 1969 are joining this site in order to have a single site for discussion of concerns around the Gibson's lawsuit.

Since our classes will all rejoin  for the next cluster reunion, this anticipates that.  We hope to be able to combine the current Class of 1968 and 1969 sites and make it a central portal for all three classes, once we solve  some technical issues.  Class members from '68 and '69 may also chime in on whether that's a good move before we do so.

The One Oberlin Report:

President Ambar and other Oberlin Faculty have planned a speaking tour to inform alumni about this report and the progress towards implementation.

The Report WAS adopted by the General Faculty by a nearly unanimous vote in May.

HI, Everyone:

Thanks to Aaron Levin, we now have a recording of the Class Memorial Service, held during the Reunion. Effectively edited, it is about 26 minutes long.  You can listen to it by clicking below. Whatever software you use for listening to audio should start up when you click the link.

 If for some reason that doesn't work for you, let me know.  I can email a file that is small enough for most emails to handle.

Thanks.
