Let’s talk about privilege. By going to Yale, we have been given an extraordinary gift, one that will keep on giving for the rest of our lives.
STERN: At the sit-in
On Thursday morning, I was sitting in seminar, as usual, when I got an email alert telling me that 48 Fossil Free Yale members had entered Woodbridge Hall and weren’t planning on leaving any time soon.
STERN: In praise of Michael Herbert
