Jewell Robinson Dinner

Named in honor of Jewell Robinson—actor, writer, producer, and the first African American student admitted to Goucher College—the annual Jewell Robinson Dinner brings together members and friends of Goucher’s African American community in the spirit of celebration, reflection, and fellowship.

The AAGC and Jewell Robinson Dinner Committee invite you to our 15th annual Jewell Robinson celebration on Friday, February 19, 2021! This year's event will be virtual and there is no cost to attend. Please register by February 15 at or contact the Office of Alumnae/i Affairs at 410-337-6181 or

Congratulations to this year's recipient of the Marguerite Barland '60 Merit Award, Paula Mahone '80! Mahone will be honored at the dinner for her work as a leading Black perinatologist.

In lieu of purchasing a ticket this year, we hope you will consider a donation to the Imani Fund. The Imani Fund supports students in the Maryland Scholars Program during their study abroad experience.

If you have questions regarding the dinner, the Barland award process, please email Jen Pawlo-Johnstone at!
