This past Tuesday Yale featured the first of several panels on hate, this episode particularly focused on the history of hate.
I normally wouldn't pay much attention these sorts of events--I really don't think I need to be told that hatred is bad.
But two words got me there before anyone else showed up, sketchpad in tow:
She's a rock star, you really ought to see her in action; absolutely incredible lecturer.
So I was quite eager to hear more from her, especially on a topic she so poignantly covered in our actual class when she discussed the atrocities the south committed against its black citizens.
So as I entered the vacant lecture hall, I held the door when I heard footsteps behind me. I turned to offer the door and saw... Professor Gilmore! I was kinda star struck!
Fun Fact: While drawing her, I couldn't help noticing she looks a lot like Mrs. Lang. She even sounds like her.
The drawings are, in order, Professor Ben Kiernan, Professor Gilmore, and Calhoun Master Jonathan Holloway.
