Spelman Breaks Ground for a ‘Greener’ Future
pelman College took a bold step toward environmental responsibility and made history at the same time with the groundbreaking for a new “green” residence hall on Friday, October 20, 2006. This new residential facility, the first new construction of the 21st Century at Spelman, is on track to become the first in the Atlanta University Center community, and the first HBCU to attain Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification through the U.S. Green Building Council. The building will be designed with a high priority on health, reduced environmental impact and increased resource conservation. The groundbreaking took place at the site of the new building on the land recently acquired from the AUC, at the corner of Westview Drive and Lee Street, behind the Milligan Building on West End Avenue, SW. Spelman’s President, Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum said, “Building ‘green’ is a smart investment in the future.” Expressing her concern about the sustainability of the environment, she added, “The very future of our planet is at stake. I believe we have an obligation to increase our
own environmental responsibility at Spelman and to educate students about it. With the groundbreaking for this new ‘green’ residence hall, we are, like the founders of Spelman, building for the next 100 years and doing our part to protect the environment for the generations to come.” Arthur Frazier, Spelman’s director of facilities management & services, detailed the additional firsts that will become part of Spelman’s legacy of leadership. “Out of the 237 Educational Institution members of the U.S. Green Building Council, Spelman is the first and only HBCU member and the first member in the AUC. And our ‘green’ residential facility will be the first LEED Certified Residence Hall in the state of Georgia.” Frazier clarified that actual certification will be awarded after the building is completed in Spring 2008. The residence hall will be more than 201,455 square feet and will house 303 beds, raising current housing capacity from 1,176 to 1,479. There will also be a 175-seat dining hall and a 100-car parking deck. Student occupancy is projected for July 2008. ●

Endowed Scholarship in Honor of Coretta Scott King Established at Spelman lder Bernice A. King, C’85, established on January 30, 2007 an endowed scholarship at Spelman College in memory of her mother and founding president of the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, the late Coretta Scott King. Appropriately titled the Be A King Scholarship in Honor of Coretta Scott King, the scholarship was announced on the one-year anniversary of Mrs. King’s death. “This endowment pays tribute to my mother’s life service to human rights and the philosophy of nonviolent social change,” said Elder King, the youngest child of Mrs. King and the late civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “The scholarship will provide financial assistance to deserving students with financial need who demonstrate a commitment to civic engagement, community service and volunteerism.” Elder King currently serves as president and CEO of Be A King Inc. The Be A King Scholarship in Honor of Coretta Scott King was established with a gift of $75,000 from Elder King, $25,000 from her brother Martin Luther King, III and a contribution from the The Home Depot, Inc. for $75,000.

Inside Spelman is published four times per academic year for a readership that includes alumnae, trustees, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends of the College. The newsletter is dedicated to informing our readers about news, upcoming events and issues in the life of the College.
Every Woman…Every Year: The Key to “Nothing Less Than the Best” In my first convocation speech in 2002, I told the Spelman community that I wanted Spelman College to be “nothing less than the best.” Five years later, we have moved closer to that goal – for example, several buildings have been renovated, financial aid has increased steadily, faculty research support has been enhanced, new majors have been added, our library has improved, our athletic program has grown and the national visibility of Spelman College as a top liberal arts college has increased. But we still have more to do. Let’s imagine Spelman College in 2012, another five years from now. Spelman’s academic quality is enhanced by the addition of several new faculty members, allowing us to reduce class size in departments experiencing over-enrollment pressures. Our students can focus on their studies without the constant worry of how their tuition will be paid, because we are able to offer more generous student aid packages. Every talented woman who comes to Spelman has the resources she needs to graduate, and can do so without crushing debt. Every student is able to participate in sponsored research, internship Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum and study-abroad opportunities. Our residence halls and academic buildings are state-of-the-art, and the construction of a much needed fine arts facility is underway. Everywhere you look the campus is sparkling like a diamond in the sun. Is this vision possible? Yes! “Nothing less than the best” is within our reach. But it requires one thing we don’t yet have – the commitment of financial support from every Spelman woman, every year. Nothing is more important to the achievement of our goals than the commitment of Every Woman…Every Year. Consider these facts: The tuition and fees each student pays represents only 44 percent of what it costs to educate her. The rest of her education is subsidized by the gifts past and present donors have made. Past gifts, wisely invested, have helped our endowment grow to approximately $300 million dollars. But the endowment can not be spent – only the interest earned can be used to help pay our daily expenses (faculty and staff salaries, student scholarships, energy costs, insurance bills, etc.). The rest of our expenses must be paid from federal grants and the annual gifts received from present donors – corporations, foundations and individuals who respond to our annual fundraising efforts. Every year we must raise approximately $15 million just to close the gap between our expenses and our income and balance our current budget. Fortunately, we have a track record of success in keeping our budget balanced. But, to do more – to take Spelman to the next level – will require more resources. In the past Spelman has relied more heavily on funds from the federal government, corporations and foundations than on funds from individual donors. But as the federal deficit grows and global needs proliferate, the competition for these philanthropic dollars increases daily. Savvy fundraisers are looking carefully at the institutions they support, and the first question they are asking is whether those closest to the institution are supporting it. They reason, “If those who know and love the institution best don’t support it, why should we?” The annual commitment of every Spelman woman, every year is essential to the continuing strength of the College not only because it helps us to meet our annual financial needs but, equally important, a high level of alumnae participation helps to inspire the generosity of others. The good news is that we have a high level of alumnae support, typically expressed by a gift at reunion. Approximately 80 percent of our alumnae made a gift to the College sometime in the last five years, typically at reunion. However, a reunion gift once every five years translates into an annual participation rate of about 16 percent, not enough to meet our daily needs, and leaves Spelman vulnerable when we compete for grants with colleges that boast annual participation rates of 30 percent, 40 percent, 50 percent or higher. Every Spelman woman has the power to change this situation – and move us closer to our goal of “nothing less than the best.” Every Spelman woman has the power because every gift counts, no matter what the size. The young alumna who sets up a “Bill Pay” arrangement with her bank to automatically send $10 a month to Spelman helps our participation rate as much as the more established alumna who prefers to write a yearly check of $10,000. Whether it is an online gift through our Web site, an automatic electronic funds transfer or a personal check sent through the mail, every gift to the Annual Fund counts! The key to our long-term success is consistency – Every Woman…Every Year. A Spelman College degree is the gift that keeps on giving – year in and year out, the name of Spelman opens doors of opportunity for graduates throughout their lives. Perhaps without even knowing it, every Spelman graduate has been the beneficiary of those donors who preceded her. To preserve and strengthen Spelman College for the next generation, we must continue to build this chain of philanthropy one woman at a time. “Nothing less than the best” will truly be in our grasp when Spelman’s nearly 14,000 alumnae have joined arms in support of Every Woman...Every Year. ●
Pearl Cleage’s A Song for Coretta Pays Tribute to Coretta Scott King
Song for Coretta, a play born from a poignant moment in Atlanta’s and America’s recent past, made its premiere February15–18, 2007 at Baldwin Burroughs Theatre at Spelman College. Written by noted author, playwright and Cosby endowed professor of humanities at Spelman College, Pearl Cleage, C’71, A Song for Coretta focuses on the interaction between five characters from different backgrounds and experiences while they wait in line to pay respects to Coretta Scott King after her death. Cleage said she was inspired to write the play after watching news footage of people who waited outside Ebenezer Baptist Church to bid farewell to Mrs. King after her death January 30, 2006. “I was very moved by their patience as they stood in all that cold rain, and I wanted to create some imaginary characters and place them in that line,” said Cleage. “I think I was trying to show what an impact she made on a wide range of people who did not even know each other. I want the audience to think about the life of Mrs. King and the example of that life. She was a person dedicated to truth, peace and freedom. I hope that when people see the play, they will think about how those issues manifest in their own lives.” Directed by Crystal Dickinson, assistant professor of drama, cast members included Andrea Frye, C’67, as Helen Richards, Nishanthi Bailey as Zora Evans, Deandrea Crawford as Keisha Camreron, Jade LambertSmith, C’98, as Mona Lisa Martin and Brynn Tucker, C’2008 as Gwen Johnson. Cleage, also a poet and essayist, is the author of several novels, including Baby Brother’s Blues, Some Things I Never Thought I’d Do, and What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day, which was an Oprah Book Club selection and a New York Times bestseller. Her other plays include Blues for an Alabama Sky and Flyin’ West. ●
King Endowed Scholarship C o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 1 . New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, where Elder King ministers under the leadership of Bishop Eddie L. Long, also made a $14,000 donation. The Be A King Scholarship in Honor of Coretta Scott King initially will award a $7,500 scholarship for the 2007–2008 academic year to two rising seniors, with the remaining $174,000 serving to establish the scholarship endowment. The scholarships will go to students pursuing a degree in education, music or psychology, all areas of great interest and importance to Coretta Scott King. A very active member of the Spelman community, Mrs. King spoke at convocations, conferences and most recently President Tatum’s Inaugural Symposia. When awarded an honorary degree from Spelman in 1984, Mrs. King inspired the graduates with these words: “… As graduates you can be proud of a remarkable heritage of achievement. However, I know you won’t rest on your laurels too long, because this great heritage means you also have a responsibility. You have an awesome responsibility to pick up the burden of leadership that rightfully falls to the educated Black woman. No matter what kind of career you are planning, you are challenged to be a leader – not just a leader in your chosen profession,
but a leader of the struggle for economic and social justice and for world peace.” Also in honor of Mrs. King, the Coretta Scott King Walk was announced. The Walk, in partnership with the American Cancer Society, will take place on Saturday, April 28, 2007 in
Atlanta. “The American Cancer Society is pleased to be a partner in the walk to commemorate Coretta Scott King and call attention to all of her great accomplishments and contributions," said Georgette Porter, the Society's senior vice president for Georgia. ●

Spelman Support Tops $1,000,000 for Students Impacted by Hurricane Katrina
n the wake of the devastating floods that emerged from Hurricane Katrina in fall 2005, Spelman College quickly felt the impact of the storm as it directly affected the Spelman College community. In addition to members of the faculty, staff, alumnae and many friends of the College, there were 34 enrolled Spelman College students from neighborhoods in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama that were destroyed by the hurricane, and 41 guest students from Dillard and Xavier Universities who sought safety and the opportunity to continue their education at Spelman College. The urgency of their need was clear, but beyond the capacity of Spelman to respond without assistance. Fortunately the College didn’t have to. The gift of $600,000 awarded by the Mellon Foundation for distribution via the Southern Education Foundation was the largest of several significant gifts that allowed Spelman
to respond to the needs of the guest students and the currently enrolled Spelman students who lived in communities directly impacted by the hurricane and related flooding. In addition to the Mellon grant, the College also received a grant of $250,000 from the CocaCola Foundation to aid Hurricane Katrina students. The Jack and Jill of America Foundation, Inc. contributed $50,000, Scholarship America donated $35,000 and Spelman faculty, staff, alumnae and other individual donors and organizations contributed gifts ranging in size from $10–$10,000. These generous donations totaled approximately $1,000,000 designated for Hurricane Katrina scholarship support in 2005–2006. In addition, in spring 2006 Spelman received $35,000 from the U.S. Department of Education to help offset the costs of receiving the guest students from Dillard and Xavier. ●
Spelman College Parents Association Launches New Web Site and Regional System he Spelman College Parents Association (SCPA) has been expanding the scope and breadth of its involvement across the country in anticipation of the 2007–2008 academic year. In doing so, the association launched the new SCPA Web site, (http://www.spelman.edu/parents/association/index.shtml). The Association has developed the SCPA database and is sending e-mail updates on Spelman College and SCPA events and activities. The SCPA also launched a seven-region system for parent participation: Northeast, Southeast, South Central, Great Lakes, Plains/Rocky Mountain, Far West and International. “Through our SCPA Executive Committee, we have been very pleased to remain in touch with Spelman College administrators to share ways and means of providing ongoing updates to Spelman parents throughout the world,” says Stephanie Montgomery, co-chair, SCPA. “The new regional system is a vehicle that ultimately will allow us to increase the input from parents and strengthen the communication process.” The work of the SCPA has at its foundation a continual strategy of embracing the ideals of the Spelman College mission to provide an extraordinary academic, nurturing and supportive environment for students. Parents and guardians of Spelman College students are automatically members of the SCPA. There are many opportunities for parents and guardians to become more active with the College through the SCPA, including volunteering for various college activities, hosting and assisting Spelman College events in their respective hometowns and providing fundraising support for the College in a number of ways. For more information, please visit the new Web site at the address given above.

Former Spelman Employee Honored at 100th Birthday Celebration Beatrice E. Williams was recently honored by her family and friends at her 100th birthday celebration on November 18, 2006. Mrs. Williams received congratulatory messages from several high-profile dignitaries, including President Jimmy Carter and President Bill Clinton, and proclamations from Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin, Spelman College President Beverly Daniel Tatum, the Fisk University Alumni Association, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and Jack and Jill of America, Inc. A native of Aiken, South Carolina, Mrs. Williams began her tenure at Spelman in the 1940s as postmistress, and later became a member of the Department of Education. In that capacity she worked with Ms. Bazoline Usher, Mrs. Naomi Chivers, and Dr. Evelyn Carroll. During its 20-year reunion celebration in May 1986, the Spelman College class of 1966 established the Carroll-Williams Scholarship to honor the contributions of Dr. Carroll and Mrs. Williams. The endowed scholarship is awarded to students with a commitment to teaching. ●
Hale Woodruff and Nancy Elizabeth Prophet Art Exhibition Marks 75 Years of Creative Achievement ale Woodruff, Nancy Elizabeth Prophet and the Academy,” a research and conservation project, opened January 18, 2007 at the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art and runs through May 12, 2007. Considered pioneering artists, Hale Woodruff and Nancy Elizabeth Prophet established art programs in the Atlanta University Center in the 1930s. Despite segregation, Woodruff and Prophet created one of the premiere institutions for art instruction for African Americans. In light of their Atlanta accomplishments, “Hale Woodruff, Nancy Elizabeth Prophet and the Academy” positions Woodruff and Prophet as the artist-educators and institution builders who challenged and transformed the existing academic structure and offerings for African Americans. Curated by Andrea Barnwell Brownlee, Ph.D., C’93, director of the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, and Amalia K. Amaki, Ph.D., curator of the Paul R. Jones Collection and professor of art, art history and Black American studies at the University of Delaware, “Hale Woodruff, Nancy Elizabeth Prophet and the Academy” brings the lives, efforts and work of Woodruff and Prophet into a critical dialogue for the first time. “Hale Woodruff, Nancy Elizabeth Prophet and the Academy” also commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Spelman College Department of Art, which Woodruff and Prophet founded, and celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Spel-
man College Museum of Fine Art. While Woodruff is widely recognized for originating the Atlanta University Annual Exhibition of Painting, Sculpture and Prints by Negro Artists – an art competition that lasted from 1942 to 1970 – his own artistic accomplishments have not been adequately examined. Although Prophet created an impressive body of work (much of which has been lost or destroyed) and in the late 1920s and 1930s was regarded by American and European critics alike as one of the most talented American sculptors, until now her work has never been the subject of an exhibition outside of her home state of Rhode Island. The exhibition unveils the recently conserved works in the College’s collection, features more than 50 paintings and works on paper by Woodruff and presents all existing sculptures by Prophet for the first time. The limited edition catalogue includes contributions by Amalia Amaki, Ph.D., Andrea Barnwell Brownlee, Ph.D., Richard Long, Ph.D., M. Akua McDaniel, Ph.D., C’69, Anne Collins
Smith, C’96, and Mary Parks Washington, C’46. “Hale Woodruff, Nancy Elizabeth Prophet and the Academy” is made possible by the Getty Foundation and the Henry Luce Foundation, Inc. Additional support is provided by the Fulton County Arts Council and the Georgia-Pacific Foundation. ●
Bridging the Gap: Similarities and Differences Among Student Women of Color Conference
he Spelman College Student Government Association (SSGA) and the Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement (LEADS) co-hosted Spelman’s first Women of Color Student Leadership Conference held on March 31 and April 1, 2007. The theme of this conference was Bridging the Gap: Similarities and Differences Among Student Women of Color. The conference had three major goals: develop leaders among student women of color; address issues facing student women of color; and begin working together to deal with issues facing women of color. Spelman College is an institution known for developing intellectual and ethical leaders among Black women. With this mission, it is only fitting that Spelman brings together women of various minority groups to discuss the issues that face all of our communities. ●

Arcus Foundation $140,000 Gift Allows Spelman College to Process Audre Lorde Papers ith a $140,000 grant from the Michiganbased Arcus Foundation, the Spelman College archives will process approximately 40 linear feet of papers by Audre Lorde, one of the most significant and influential African American feminist writer/activists of the 20th century. The collection, which will not be available to the public until the end of 2007, includes the writer’s poems, manuscripts, journal entries, letters, essays and other artifacts. Gifted to Spelman in Lorde’s will, the papers were received in 1995, three years after her death. At the request of Lorde’s estate, the collection was closed until an authorized biography was completed. The biography, Warrior Poet, was written by Alexis DeVeaux and published in 2004. “The Audre Lorde papers are one of the most significant among special collections in the Spelman archives,” said Professor Beverly GuySheftall, C’66, founding director of the Women’s Center and Anna Julia Cooper professor of women’s studies. “They are the first acquisition in a broader strategy on the part of the Women’s Center of becoming a major repository for the papers of prominent contemporary Black feminist scholars/activists/writers. Archivist Brenda Banks, C’71, will assume the major responsibility for the processing of the Lorde papers during the 2006–2007 academic year. Scholars and activists from across the globe convened at Spelman College in October 2006 to
commemorate the Women’s Research & Resource Center’s 25 years of boldly transformative feminist activism, intellectual leadership and change. The celebratory symposium, “Remembering Audre Lorde: In Celebration of Black Women Writers, Scholars, Artists and Activists,” recognized lesbian poet and feminist activist, Audre Lorde and her invaluable contribution to WRRC’s evolution over the past 25 years as a site for feminist intellectual discourse and exchange. Also funded by the Arcus Foundation, “Remembering Audre Lorde …” featured a film showcase and premiere of “Her,” a science fiction short by Ayoka Chenzira, director of the Digital Moving Image Salon. One of the most significant and influential Black feminist writer/activists of the 20th century, Lorde held numerous teaching positions, formed coalitions between Afro-German and Afro-Dutch women, founded a sisterhood in South Africa, was a co-founder of Kitchen Table Women of Color Press and established the St. Croix Women’s Coalition. Lorde’s first book of poetry, The First Cities, was published in 1969. A decade later, she published her Cancer Journals and later Zami: A New Spelling of My Name (1982) and Sister Outsider (1984), her first collection of essays. Both Zami and Sister Outsider are staple texts in hundreds of women’s studies classes throughout the academy. ●
Rockefeller Renovations Nearing Completion The renovation and expansion of historic Rockefeller Hall is expected to be completed in April 2007. “We are pleased with the progress to date and excited about adding modern amenities to this distinguished building, while preserving its historical characteristics,” said Arthur Frazier, director of facilities management & services. Upon completion, Rockefeller Hall will have additional offices, conference rooms and restrooms. Elevators are also being added, and the Howe Hall Auditorium will be converted into office space for Institutional Advancement and Business Affairs. Occupancy is slated for May 2007. Rockefeller Hall, built in 1886, was the first building constructed on Spelman’s campus. Today it functions as the main administration building. ●

ALUMNAE GIVING BY CLASS Consistent Alumnae Giving – Key: For some time, the College has been spreading the message of the importance of consistent alumnae giving. Consistent alumnae giving helps to increase the College’s alumnae participation rate and demonstrates alumnae loyalty. This is vital to the institution because strong alumnae support generates additional and much needed resources for the College. When alumnae give on a consistent basis, it signals to foundations and corporations that Spelman is worthy of their support. Consistent giving is also a factor in determining the College’s national rankings. In this listing of alumnae contributors, those who have made annual contributions each year for the past five years are highlighted in blue. We are proud to recognize their generosity and commitment to their alma mater.

Reunion 2006 Spelman Donor Appreciation Reception Honors Alumnae Donors he Donor Appreciation Celebration honoring alumnae donors attending the Reunion 2006 was held on May 11, 2006 at the Georgia World Congress Center. Each year Spelman recognizes the generous gifts made by reunioning alumnae that help provide a solid financial foundation for the College. April Robinson, C’2007, served as mistress of ceremony for the event, while Sharon Owens, C’76, and Chanel Hampton, C’2006, made heartfelt remarks regarding their commitment to the College and the importance of giving. “Through these roles, I have learned important lessons about leadership and service and the responsibility of giving back,” said Ms. Hampton referring to her role as a student telefund manager and her involvement as a committee member for the student campaign. Ms. Hampton made her first gift to the College via the student campaign and urges other students to do the same. “Students and young alumnae, we must do our part and follow the example that you (alumnae
24 INSIDE SPELMAN
in the audience) have provided for us. You are our role models and it is an honor for me to thank you for your generosity,” she added. Ms. Owens also urged alumnae to make gifts to Spelman, highlighting the need for alumnae participation. “I, like so many of my Spelman sisters, understand the importance of alumnae giving to the schools financial success. It is only when Spelman sisters stand up and are counted for their financial contributions in support of the ideals and values that we love so much about Spelman, that we can seriously leverage our ability to compete for matching funds and corporate support. Although the amount of your contribution is important, it is equally important that every Spelman Alumnae give a contribution of at least $10 each year. This gives a visual picture of alumnae participation to corporate sponsors. A high percentage of alumnae giving shows corporate sponsors that we believe in Spelman College. We must show that we believe in Spelman first, as you cannot sell a product
unless you first believe in it. Spelman’s financial success is our product.” Spelman College President Beverly Daniel Tatum gave an informative presentation on the state of the College, sharing important financial information with alumnae as well as future needs and recent accomplishments. Vice President for Institutional Advancement Eloise Alexis, C’86, and Dineo Brinson, C’94, associate director of alumnae affairs, recognized all alumnae donors and presented each group with a gift. The traditional festooning ceremony took place for alumnae who made leadership gifts of $5,000 or more since their last reunion and alumnae who joined the Guardian Society (those who made provisions for Spelman to receive planned gifts). Eighteen alumnae were presented with silk scarves commissioned by the College for this occasion. Spelman President Beverly Daniel Tatum presents a silk scarf to each recipient at the traditional festooning ceremony.

Alumna Q&A – Launice P. Sills, C’80, with Inside Spelman Q: When did you make your first gift to Spelman and what prompted you to do so?
A: My first gift to Spelman was during the 1990 Reunion. Although unable to attend (due to the birth of my third daughter) I wanted to support the College and my class by contributing to our 10-year reunion class gift.
Q: Why do you feel it is important to make the commitment to give back?
A: I believe it’s important to make the commitment to give back because we make a difference in the lives of many young women who, without our support, would not be able to obtain a college degree. Giving ensures that Spelman will continue to stand and serve as “a beacon of heavenly light” for young women in pursuit of a college education.
Q: What do you think is the biggest misconception about alumnae giving?
A: I believe the biggest misconception about alumnae giving is the notion that your gift has to be a substantial amount. Unfortunately, we often forget that “it’s the gift that counts” and when counted, small amounts collectively make a substantial one.
Q: What is your profession and how do you feel the value of a Spelman degree has contributed to your success? A: The exposure, nurturance and guidance provided by Spelman proved invaluable in pursuing my career as an attorney. A Spelman education enhanced my academic knowledge but, more importantly, exposed me to past and present struggles for social justice and to all kinds of people who broadened my perspective and strengthened my social consciousness. The success I have attained, in part due to my Spelman degree, is priceless.

With each encounter I would simply state “you know she went to Spelman.” As a result of my simple exposure, they were able to identify Spelman women who had the same desires and goals they have. Exposure to my Spelman sisters and the College allowed them to make the decision that I always knew would be right for them. What’s even more reaffirming, they are not simply attending my alma mater, they love it!!!
Q: You currently pay two tuitions and still make donating to the College a priority – why?
A: Despite paying two tuitions, donating to Q: How does it feel to have two daughters enrolled at your alma mater? A: I am so proud that my daughters were accepted by and chose to attend Spelman. As many mothers can attest, to have a daughter, especially during her teen years, make the same choice as her mother – on anything – is rare. I would be delusional to think that their decisions were based solely on a desire to follow in their mother’s footsteps. I have credited their decisions to attend Spelman not as a desire to emulate their mother but as an affirmation that I have done a few things right as a mother. Throughout my daughters’ lives they have been surrounded by 26 INSIDE SPELMAN
Spelman remains a priority to me due to a commitment made 33 years ago. During my sophomore year, I was a recipient of a scholarship to Spelman students from the United Negro College Fund (UNCF.) At that time, my parents were paying two tuitions to Spelman. The day I received the scholarship was one of the proudest moments for me as a young woman, not because of the academic accomplishment, but the sense of joy attained from my ability to lessen my parents’ financial burden. When I ran out of Rockefeller Hall to call my father (after receiving notification of the scholarship), I stopped on the steps and made a promise to support the UNCF and
Spelman so I could lessen the financial burdens of other students like me, who could then focus solely on their education without working during the school year.
Q: Is there anything that you would like to share with your Spelman sisters about the importance of alumnae giving? A: Until recently, I didn’t know that alumnae giving in many instances has a direct correlation to the College’s ability to obtain the full benefit of corporate or other donor contributions. Often these contributions are extended as matching funds. If we don’t give a dollar annually, we can’t get the matching dollar. Also, the participation rate of alumnae on an annual basis plays a critical role for corporations and foundations in determining where to designate their charitable contributions. The higher the annual participation rate, the more positively the institution is viewed. Therefore, don’t make the mistake I made as a young alumna in thinking you only give when you can add more than one zero to the dollar amount. Whether its $20, $200 or $2,000, send it annually (it’s also better on your budget). Our dollars, whether big or small, show not only our love for our alma mater, but our desire for Spelman to continue to educate African American women. The quality of Spelman’s future depends on our own actions.

$7 Million for Scholarships Announced at Spelman’s 125th Signature Event here was a lot to celebrate at Spelman College’s 125th Anniversary Signature Event on April 10, 2006, including a series of gifts totaling $7 million for need-based scholarship support. During the black-tie affair at Atlanta’s Georgia Aquarium, Spelman College President Beverly Daniel Tatum announced that trustee Ted Aronson and his wife, Barbara, made a gift of $5 million to establish the Robert D. Flanigan/Johnathan Smith Endowed Scholarship. Inspired by their gift, two of Mr. Aronson’s friends and colleagues also made generous gifts, designated for endowed need-based scholarships. “My partners and I have been associated with Spelman’s financial affairs for nearly 20 years. We have been very much aware of the
College’s needs including facilities, faculty salaries and more,” says Mr. Aronson. “However, we noted that Spelman was radically short of educational funds, so naturally we gravitated toward scholarships in order to attract the very best – regardless of need.” “These dollars in our endowment will generate approximately $263,000 in new scholarship dollars. That amount will certainly grow over the next few years and be available for scholarship support in perpetuity,” explained Dr. Tatum. She added, “After hearing about Mayor Shirley Franklin’s ‘Next Step…The Atlanta Promise’ program, designed to encourage and support Atlanta Public School seniors in planning for life after high school, Mr. Aronson indicated that a substantial portion of the endowment income generated from the gift should be used
to ensure that admitted students who have grown up in the widely cast Atlanta shadow of Spelman have access to a premier educational experience.” Ten scholarships a year will be targeted for admitted students with financial need from Atlanta, with preference given to those graduating from the Atlanta Public Schools. Atlanta scholarship recipients will be recognized as Robert Daniel Flanigan Scholars in honor of Spelman College’s vice president for business and financial affairs and chief financial officer, who has served the institution for more than 30 years. Scholarships will also be awarded on the basis of need to students from other regions of the United States. These recipients will be recognized as Jonathan Smith Scholars in honor of Spelman’s long-serving and dedicated trustee.
Alumna Schulyla Goodson-Bell, C’87, Continues Cultivation through Coca-Cola Company Chats
chuyla Goodson, C’87, division operations counsel for Coca-Cola South Africa (Pty) Ltd, has been extremely instrumental in establishing The Coca-Cola Com-
pany Chat: An Evening at Reynolds Cottage, an annual event that continues to cultivate the long-standing relationship between Spelman College and The Coca-Cola Company. Spelman College President Beverly Daniel Tatum hosted the first chat on March 17, 2005 and the College is preparing for the third annual chat in the fall of 2007. The idea for The Coca-Cola Company Chat was born during one of Attorney Goodson’s visits to the Spelman College Office of Alumnae Affairs. She suggested that having a reception for The Coca-Cola Company alumnae and friends immediately after company bonuses are distributed might increase philanthropic giving to the Spelman College Annual Fund. Also, in addition to the generous contributions that it makes, The CocaCola Company has an excellent matching gifts program designed to match employee gifts to educational, arts or cultural institutions. Ingrid Saunders Jones, director of corporate external affairs and senior vice president of The Coca-Cola Company, and chairperson of The Coca-Cola Foundation, and Helen Smith Price, C’79, assistant vice president and executive director of The Coca-Cola Foundation, have been instrumental in supporting this event by attending and urging The

Coca-Cola Company employees to do the same. In addition to providing personal financial support to show her commitment, dedication and love for Spelman College, Attorney Goodson has helped create a successful event, offering others the opportunity to collaborate and maximize their gifts to the College.

Lilly Endowment Funds Global Conference on Spirituality, Religion and Vocation Held at Spelman College omen of the African Diaspora convened at Spelman College in Atlanta for the groundbreaking “Global Conference 2006 – Sisters of African Descent: Connecting Spirituality, Religion and Vocation,” September 21–23, 2006. The conference was funded by the Lilly Endowment, and was one of the culminating events of its Theological Exploration of Vocation Initiative. The documentation and visibility of the importance of Black women’s experiences and contributions to religious life and culture has been increasingly on the rise since Alice Walker’s 1986 book In Search of My Mother’s Garden. In support of this growing body of womanist scholarship, “Sisters of African Descent: Connecting Spirituality, Religion and Vocation” gave voice to the experience, research and wisdom of women “who are spiritually grounded and rooted in a belief system that propels them in life,” said the Rev. Lisa Rhodes, dean of Spelman College’s Sisters Chapel and director of the WISDOM (Women in Spiritual Discernment of Ministry) Center at the College. “The conference was an empowering opportunity to bear witness to the stories of women from throughout the Diaspora as we discussed struggles and triumphs in career, religion and the community. “A historic international gathering of this sort does not occur often enough,” she added. “We need to stand together on issues that impact the quality of our experiences as a socio-historic group and develop a praxis and research agenda to help guide ministry and scholarship.” While women from various ideological, professional, cultural and spiritual backgrounds were the focus of the event, men were encouraged to attend as well. The Sisters Center for WISDOM at Spelman took the lead in developing 17 sessions during the two-day conference that delved into a range of topics including:
28 INSIDE SPELMAN
• Sane and in my Right Mind: Mental Effects of Poverty, Trauma and HIV/AIDS on Black Women in the Diaspora • In Search of Our Mothers’ Gardens: Black Women, Mothering and Community Survival • Unveiling the Reality of Rape: Activism as a Healing Modality (which included a screening of NO!, a documentary about sexual violence and healing in African-American communities.) Speakers included Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, C’70, 2002–2004 Cosby Chair of Fine
Arts at Spelman, curator emeritas at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and a founding member of the acclaimed African-American women’s a cappella ensemble, Sweet Honey in the Rock. Dr. Reagon provided the conference’s opening plenary address. During her presentation, Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears discussed American society’s shift in views concerning marriage and family. “We used to believe that marriage and childbearing went hand-inhand,” said Justice Sears. “Far too many people today, however, view having babies as a rite of
passage, and in some social circles, even a status symbol. As a judge, I have seen firsthand the legal ramifications of the breakdown of the family.” According to Justice Sears, studies consistently demonstrate that children of parents who are engaged in a loving, committed relationship tend to fare better, emotionally and physically, than their counterparts. She said that she hopes this conference can advance the dialogue to restoring the family as the cornerstone of the African-American community. The closing plenary speaker, Dr. Mercy Amba Oduyoye, is founder of the Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians and director of the Institute of Women In Religion and Culture at Trinity Theological Seminary in Ghana. “Religion is an important aspect of life,” said Dr. Oduyoye. “A lot of what we do derives from our faith. So, the emphasis I would have for the conference is for us to live out the ethics of our faith… to enhance ourselves so that the communities in which we belong will flourish on either side of the Atlantic.” Other highlights included the Divine Legacy of Ministry awards banquet on Friday, Sept. 22, which featured as speaker Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie, the first African-American woman appointed bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. The banquet honored and recognized several clergywoman and scholars, including Marian Wright Edelman, C’60, Drs. Jacqueline Grant, Katie Cannon, Bernice Johnson Reagon and Cynthia Hale. There was a closing worship service on Sunday, Sept. 24, at Sisters Chapel, with guest pastor and scholar The Rev. Dr. Cheryl Sanders, associate professor of Christian ethics at Howard University School of Divinity and senior pastor of Third Street Church of God in Washington, D.C.
LEADS Salutes Philanthropist Candy Berman
t has been said that service is the rent you pay for your existence on earth, a life principle philanthropist Candy Berman believes we each should be obliged to fulfill. Ms. Berman is president of Candy Berman & Associates, a company specializing in events and projects for nonprofit organizations. Her generous contribution to the Spelman College Center for Leadership & Civic Engagement (LEADS) supported the LEADS Policy Summit and WOMENomics Symposium, two of its leadership development programs. “We salute Candy Berman for her philanthropic support,” says Dr. Jane E. Smith, C’68, LEADS’ executive director. Passing along her family’s legacy of giving has influenced both Ms. Berman’s personal and professional life. Her volunteer experience in the community and exposure to corporate culture through Leadership Atlanta has allowed her to live her passion and lead by example. “We are not put here just to take up space,” she offers. She has been named a YWCA Woman of Achievement and has received the 1982 Abe Schwartz Young Award and the 2003 Selig Distinguished Service Award. Her enthusiasm for giving is palpable. “I have always been passionate about inspiring and educating young people,” says this Simmons College graduate. “Supporting Spelman College’s efforts to create confident women who will one day be philanthropic leaders made it a perfect fit.” Support from individuals like Candy Berman allows LEADS to advance its mission to empower
women of color to fully utilize their capacity to assume leadership roles that can facilitate the change the world requires. “LEADS charge is to cultivate and teach a model of leadership based on the experiences of African-American women leaders and develop a collegiate co-curriculum that teaches our students the skills necessary for leadership and civic engagement,” offers Dr. Smith. Since its inception, LEADS has established student programs that support its role as an emerging academic site for research and community service, as it relates to the leadership development of women of color. Informative symposiums such as the Women of Excellence and Leadership Series, a competitive program held annually, afford a select group of students the opportunity to participate in seminars focused on leadership training and development. Establishing environments for student collaborations is an important aspect of the Women of Color Student Leadership Conference where over 100 Atlanta-area college students will convene in March 2007 at a one-day conference that identifies approaches to leadership utilized by women of color to create and sustain global alliances. The proposed Spelman Leadership Development Co-Curriculum will be a leadership development program that offers students instruction on the transformative models of African-American and Diaspora women and a solid comprehension of key leadership models and theories.
LEADS also offers diverse opportunities to foster community collaborations and civic engagement through programs administered by the Bonner Office of Community Service and Student Development. An example of that initiative is the Shepherd Poverty Alliance, which integrates academic study and learning to assist students in developing a strong sense of vocation. Through service to communities and disadvantaged individuals, students learn to serve and commit themselves to actions that address societal issues, and promote a structure for student leadership and volunteer service. Research programs such as the Spelman’s Independent Scholars Program (SIS), offer students the opportunity to pull from the past to create a brighter future. SIS is an independent, interdisciplinary and intergenerational learning experience that pairs elder “Women of Wisdom” with young scholars across all academic disciplines. SIS recently published its second anthology, Their Memories, Our Treasure: Conversations with African-American Women of Wisdom, a powerful compilation of 11 decades of oral history as told by elder AfricanAmerican women from the South. LEADS is continuing its commitment to establishing diverse, inclusive models for leadership development for women of color. The 2007 Leadership and Women of Color Conference will take place May 9–10, 2007 at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia.
Title III Program Provides $1.3 Million Toward Academic Improvement The Title III Program provided more than $1.3 million dollars toward academic improvement at Spelman College during the 2005–2006 fiscal year. The majority of the funds were allocated for use in four areas – annual giving, physics and engineering, foreign language and fine arts. The Fine Arts Department received the bulk of the dollars – $1.2 million. The Music, Drama & Dance, and Art Departments all benefited from the contribution, which provided several crucial upgrades and enhancements to expand and improve the curriculum, facilities and learning environment; among them were state-of-the-art electronic classrooms, display tables, a sound system, a new stage, a music technology lab, pianos and other instruments. “One of the major goals of the Title III Program is to provide support for areas of study where African Americans are underrepresented, such as physics, math, the sciences,” says Dr. Ivan Page, director of Title III at Spelman College. The new physics and engineering computer lab completed in fall 2006 is a direct example of that, where $48,500 was spent on 25 top-of-the-line computers and software for the lab. “There is a huge under-representation of African American women in engineering and physics,” explains Dr. Page. Dr. Derrick Hylton, chair and associate professor of physics at Spelman, agrees. He anticipates an increase in the number of students interested in
physics at Spelman. “The new lab will allow for expansion of the curriculum, offer new courses and attract more students majoring in physics and engineering. Now we have better research capabilities,” says Dr. Hylton. Of the remaining $1.3 million, $48,795 went toward upgrading computer technology in the foreign language lab, and $50,000 was used to automate the annual giving Telefund program. Title III is a federal program that supports the development and academic progress of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Grant awards range from $500,000 to $3 million, depending on student population and graduate school attendance. Title III funds are used to pay for computers and software supplies, instructional supplies, faculty and staff training programs and contractual services. The activities supported with Title III funds include the Comprehensive Writing Program: Writing Across the Curriculum; Interdisciplinary Studies Program: African Diaspora and the World; Multimedia Education Research and Interdisciplinary Teaching (MERIT); computer and information sciences; media and information technology; mathematics; a faculty and curriculum development program in the social sciences, education and fine arts; and the Women’s Center.

Students’ Campaign for Giving On February 20, 2006, the Student Giving Campaign 2006 was launched. The goal of the campaign was to educate current Spelman College students about the importance of giving back to the College and to encourage them to begin donating while they are still enrolled. The campaign targeted the entire student body and was managed by the Student Philanthropy Council. Alicia Tinsley, C’2007, and Tennille McCray, C’2008, president and vice presi-
dent (respectively) of the Student Philanthropy Council, provided leadership with the help of the Division of Institutional Advancement’s Office of Annual Giving. The group challenged students to give and encouraged healthy competition between the classes. Announced on Founders Day, April 11, 2006, at the time the campaign had raised $1,748.85 in donations, and 14.38 percent of the student body had participated.
Scholarship Recipients Give Thanks The Spelman College Annual Scholarship Donors Appreciation Luncheon took place on April 20, 2006 in the Manley College Center June Gary Hopps Atrium. This special day of recognition, held to thank donors for the generous scholarship support that they provide to deserving students, offers donors the opportunity to meet the recipients of their specific funds. For many of these students, a Spelman education would not be possible without the financial support from these benefactors.

The evening gala celebrated and honored grand dame Spriggs, credited with helping introduce modern dance to Atlanta, for her nearly three-decade legacy of teaching and nurturing in the Spelman College dance and drama departments. The proceeds from ticket sales for “A Night For Dancing” went to the Mozel Spriggs Scholarship Fund. During her 27-year leadership of Spelman’s dance programs, Spriggs brought to campus such famed modern dance pioneers as Alvin Ailey, Arthur Mitchell, Geoffrey Holder, Martha Graham, Pearl Primus, George Faison and many others as performers and lecturers. The Rod Rodgers Troupe, which emphasized “Black is beautiful” dance, visited campus at least six times during Spriggs’ tenure. Born in Chattanooga, Tenn., Spriggs, 81, earned her master’s degree in dance from New York University in 1949. During Spriggs’ years of service to Spelman, between 1949 and 1969, the only professional modern dance artists to visit Atlanta were presented at Spelman and other colleges in the AUC. Spriggs was motivated to present these artists for her students, she explained, “because we needed some role models to show our dancers that Black people could dance.” “Ms. Spriggs nurtured and developed a community dance program through very tough times. She presented in performance not just African American dance artists at Spelman, but performing artists of all backgrounds,” explained Kenneth Green, who is the event’s producing
director and a lecturer of dance at Spelman. “When artists of color could not perform in any other venue in Atlanta, Mozel always enthusiastically provided a home for them.” Delroy Lindo’s work in filmmaker Spike Lee’s Clockers, Crooklyn, Malcolm X and HBO’s Lackawanna Blues has garnered him respect and acclaim in the industry. Ten-time NAACP Image Award winner and Emmy-nominated Victoria Rowell stars in the popular daytime drama The Young and Restless. Mykelti Williamson debuted as “Bubba” on the big screen opposite Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump. All three donated their time and talents to celebrate and honor Ms. Spriggs as the hosts of the exciting evening that was filled with dance, music and fond memories.
Several Spelman alumnae, as well as matriculating students who have studied under Spriggs, were featured performers of the evening as they paid tribute to an individual who greatly influenced their professional lives: Jessica Paige, C’2000, Audrey Waters, C’2002, Ntianu Young, C’2004, Shannon Smith, C’2006, Ashley Brown, C’2006 and Nia Erving, C’2006 were among them.
