Each term African and African American Studies sponsors the Angelina Weld Grimké lecture series and at least one additional event or lecture.
Angelina Weld Grimké (February 27, 1880 – June 10, 1958) was the first African American female student to attend the Carleton Academy, a preparatory school that was a part of the college campus from 1866 to 1906. She went on to be an American journalist, teacher, playwright and poet who came to prominence during the Harlem Renaissance; she was one of the first African-American women to have a play publicly performed. A list of previous Grimke Lectures can be found here.
