  • Carrying on college Antioch College activist legacy

    This past summer, Antioch College Trustee David Goodman and Antioch history professor Kevin McGruder organized a commemorative trip to Mississippi on the 50th anniversary of Freedom Summer, the student-led civil rights summer of 1964. Goodman’s brother, Andrew, was one of the three activists killed outside of Philadelphia for supporting equality for African Americans. Accompanying them were several Antioch staff members and seven students, including, from left, Residence Life Manager Nicholas Daily, Eric Rhodes, Kijin Higashibaba, IdaLease Cummings, Louise Lybrook, Ciana Ayenu, Rebecca Smith, arts faculty member Raewyn Martin, Lauren Gjessing, Kevin McGruder, Professor of History.
