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."

Congratulations to Murphy Scholar Savannah Wiegel '21 for being named to the 53rd class of Thomas J. Watson Fellows! Savannahโ€™s project, โ€œHealing Words: Building Community Health through Narrative Medicineโ€ will take her to Ireland, Switzerland, Japan, Guatemala, and Argentina, where she will explore the intersection of storytelling and medicine to inform public health initiatives. The Watson Fellowship is a one-year grant for purposeful, independent study outside the United States, awarded to graduating seniors nominated by one of 41 partner colleges. Wiegel is the 38th Hendrix student to receive a Watson Fellowship. Wiegel heard about the Watson Fellowship from Hendrix nominee Kaersti McLellan โ€™19, while they both participated in the group Odyssey project โ€œExploring Aspects of the Nicaraguan Healthcare System.โ€ Their experience included traveling to Nicaragua to learn about how kidney transplants are conducted there. โ€œBeing in that global setting helped me realize my dream to become a Watson Fellow,โ€ she said. When Wiegelโ€™s interest in narrative medicine began, she viewed it primarily on the individual level: the importance of telling and understanding experiences and emotions shared in one-on-one patient interactions. โ€œIt wasnโ€™t until halfway through my junior year that I saw the potential narrative could have in public health, especially in the context of a pandemic,โ€ she said. โ€œI knew I wanted to find a way to intertwine my passions for narrative medicine, science communication, and public health, and Iโ€™m so honored to be able to pursue my dream in a global context.โ€ Reposted from @hendrixcollege

Following this weekโ€™s murders in Atlanta, the Hendrix-Murphy Foundation adds our voice of protest condemning hate crimes and gendered violence of all kinds. In tribute to those whose lives were cut short, we share these words of Aracelis Girmay, Murphy Visiting Poet in 2017: ". . . each of us looking out from the gorgeous unlikelihood of our lives at all, finding ourselves here, witnesses to each otherโ€™s tenderness, which, this moment, is fury, is rage, which, this moment, is another way of saying: ๐˜ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ ๐˜ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ ๐˜ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ" Photo credit: Dia Dipasupil Getty Images

Rep. John Lewis, receiving the National Book Award in 2016, was overcome with emotion recalling a boyhood in which he was not allowed in the public library due to the color of his skin. Hendrix-Murphy lifts up the love of books and reading for all, especially black and brown persons who were historically denied access by both overt and invisible barriers. At this momentous time, we redouble our own commitment to being part of the solution and dismantling racist systems.
