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.

Many thanks to all who attended this year's dinner on February 18 honoring the achievements and history of Goucher's African American alumnae/i. Thanks also to those who generously contributed to the Imani Fund, supporting study abroad expenses for Maryland Scholars students!

Congratulations to the 2022 recipient of the Marguerite Barland '60 Merit Award, Logan S. Herring Sr. '04.
