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.

Thank you to all who joined us for this year's celebration! Congratulations to our 2020 Marguerite Barland '60 Merit Award recipient, Alice G. Pinderhughes '73. Look for Alice's upcoming feature in In the Loop, Goucher's monthly email newsletter.

Congratulations, also, to David Hernandez '18, Hannah Lane '18, Sophia Lipman '18, and Destini Sheppard '19, who were honored for their contributions to Goucher's Hallowed Ground Project, which seeks to further the college's commitment to study and to recognize the role of slavery and racism in the history of the land Goucher occupies. 

If you have questions regarding the dinner, the Barland award process, or would like to help plan next year's event, please email Jen Pawlo-Johnstone at!
