Fun fact: Hendrix-Murphy has a guest book that we ask all our visiting writers to sign. Going back to 2002, this is a star-studded log of famous autographs. For example, hereโ€™s a sweet message from 2x Murphy Visiting Director Gus Kaikkonen:
"Neither snow nor ice nor COVID-19 stayed these Hendrix troupers from the swift completion of their "Dream." - Xox Gus Kaikkonen, Feb - March 2021

And O, ye Fountains, Meadows, Hills, and Groves,
Forebode not any severing of our loves!
Yet in my heart of hearts I feel your might;
I only have relinquish'd one delight
To live beneath your more habitual sway...

Murphy Scholar Christian Maddox '22 was recently accepted to the Schomburg-Mellon Humanities Summer Institute sponsored by the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. As part of the application process, he proposed a research project to work on over the summer. Maddox says his project "involves analyzing the relationship between antiblackness... and antiradicalism." He believes this program will be a great opportunity in preparing his thesis, its research being "very important in explaining how the U.S. and other countries function to silence those that dare to make society better." Overall, he hopes that his work will "help uplift those voices that were and still are not able to speak for their work and dedication to helping communities."
