Over the years, renaissance man and ‘Berg alumnus Pete Green, ’78, has enjoyed delving into his heritage, studying it and collecting examples such as book and magazine covers to illustrate the struggle of African Americans through history.

Today, on Heidelberg’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day ON!, Pete delivered an inspiring keynote address, kicking off a weeklong series of primarily virtual events designed to celebrate diversity, broaden our minds and further our campus community’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

When Rachel Ferri and the ‘Berg women’s basketball team takes the court on Jan. 22, it’ll be her first game as a head coach and the first home athletic contest in nearly a year. And it can’t get here soon enough.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of all athletic competition last March, just as spring seasons were getting underway. The fall provided the opportunity for a phased, controlled return to athletic activities with strength and conditioning, smaller group practices and normal practices by the end of the semester.

This year’s symposium took on a different look because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the outcome was just as rewarding.
