Bell wins Media Award

A documentary film, “40 Years Later: Now Can We Talk?”, by Lee Anne Bell (Ed.D. 1982), professor and Barbara Silver Horowitz Director of Education, Barnard College, Columbia University, won the 2013 Media Award from the National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME). The film tells the story of the first African Americans to integrate the white high school in Batesville, Mississippi in 1967–69, and shows a provocative and moving conversation emerging from separate discussions with African American alumni, white alumni, and a third dialogue that brings the two groups face-to-face. Bell received the award at NAME’s 2013 annual conference in Oakland, CA, November 6-10, 2013.
