Members of the Lasell and Newton communities gathered Saturday for the College's Unity breakfast honoring Black History Month and celebrating inclusion and diversity.

A spirited standing-room-only crowd of elected officials, Lasell neighbors, and College faculty, staff and students packed de Witt Hall to hear Newton Mayor Setti Warren and Lasell President Michael B. Alexander speak; performances by a student-faculty African percussion group, the College's Divine Step Team and College Chorus; a video presentation by the Multicultural Student Union, and the presentation of essay contest awards to students of Newton's Williams and Lincoln-Eliot Elementary Schools.

The mission of the Unity Breakfast, sponsored by Lasell's Diversity and Inclusion Committee and overseen by Professors Jenifer Drew and Jerry Madkins, was to underscore Lasell's commitment to diversity, inclusion and civility.
