Believes in Opportunity?
Kevin Griffen ’18
A spring break shadowing a social worker empowered Kevin Griffen to address community problems at the policy level on Capitol Hill. As part of Wabash’s Malcolm X Institute for Black Studies, Kevin Griffen leads the effort to find opportunities for him and his peers to grow as community leaders and share their experiences as African American students with their brothers on campus. He’s traveled to D.C. to walk in the Million Man March and for the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, where he saw President Obama speak. Kevin leads on-campus events, like “I Too Am Wabash,” that start dialogues on culture and difference. “We are a brotherhood that sticks together. The Malcolm X Institute helps the men of color on campus lead our whole community to think about how we make lives better for communities of color nationwide.”
That’s a Wabash man for you. Seriously.
