Link alumna to speak at important Newark event

We are so excited that a Link alumna, Nikki Green ’89, will speak will be the speaker for the inaugural L&M Development Partners Lecture Series on Friday, May 5 at 4 pm at the Grand Opening of Rutgers-Newark’s Express Newark in the Hahne’s Building at 54 Halsey Street. She has written us to tell us that she is honored “to return to Newark as part of the celebration for this important art space.”

After Link, Nikki, then a Wight Foundation Scholar, went on to study at the Taft School, a private boarding school, where she had the chance to study in Barcelona, Spain, for her junior year. She then earned a BA in Art History at Wesleyan University, and a Masters and then PhD from the University of Delaware. Nikki is currently the Assistant Professor of the Arts of Africa and the African Diaspora in the Art Department at Wellesley College and is working on a book titled Rhythms of Glue, Grease, Grime and Glitter: The Body in African American Art. In November 2017, Nikki was featured at the alumni speaker at Link’s A Taste of Newark benefit.

The event on Friday, May 5th at Express Newark is free and open to the public. If you are in the area that day, join us at the event!
