Black Women To Lead Four Harvard Schools For First Time

By Ny MaGee

Black women continue to be a driving force as the world evolves. From education and politics to sports and entertainment, #blackgirlmagic is breaking barriers and making history daily.

Nearly two years ago, none of Harvard University’s 14 schools had a black woman at the helm, the Harvard Crimson reports, but come August 15, that’s going to change.

For the first time in Harvard University’s history, four of the institution’s schools will be led by Black women.

“If my presence in this role affirms someone’s sense of belonging and ownership, then I think that’s great,” says Professor Claudine Gay, who was recently appointed to become Harvard’s Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. She is the first African-American and woman to take on the position.
