In December, 11th and 12th graders from TechBoston Academy explored Angela Davis: Freed by the People as part of a class, Co-Design English, that focuses on equity and activism. The archival material on display in the Schlesinger’s Lia and William Poorvu Gallery provided the students a detailed history lesson in Davis’s life and legacy and prompted them to look inward: How will I make history?

This partnership between TechBoston Academy, a Boston Public Schools pilot school, and the Radcliffe Institute is an example of Radcliffe Engaged in action. Through this new strategic plan, Radcliffe hopes to leverage its strengths and join with the bright minds of our broader community in experiential discovery.
