"It was a true pleasure for me. It was a wonderful event. One of the most wonderful events I have been to in my 16 years at Lehigh."
"Thank YOU, Nat, for the extraordinary gift of the Revolutionary Sisters' events! Yesterday evening was such a beautiful, moving, energizing occasion in so many ways. It lifted my spirits, and was such a powerful affirmation of the tradition of revolutionary hope, endurance, and imagination. I know that many students were transformed by what they heard, and by feeling part of the tradition. Thanks for all your work bringing these extraordinary thinkers and activists to campus!"
"The two events were incredibly rich and meaningful, and I must say, for me, very poignant! So valuable for us all to hear from the four activists, their stories from back in the day as well as how richly they have aged. I connected with several of the students who remain from my 1960s class (experiencing serious deja vu). Also great to hear of (and start reading!) the work of the three scholar activists. I trust these sessions will reverberate with our students for a long time."
