Anti-racism activist to receive alumni award May 20

Horace Seldon B.D. ’53 will be presented with the 2010 Spirit of the Hill Award at an alumni luncheon on May 20, 2010

Seldon is known as the founder of Community Change, an organization that addresses racism. He has taught at both Andover Newton and Boston College and worked with the National Parks Service to lift up the Black Historical Trail. He is widely known for his research on William Lloyd Garrison and the Abolition Movement and his passion for justice.

The Spirit of the Hill Award is presented each spring at Andover Newton’s Convocation and Alumni/ae Day celebrations. It honors graduates who exemplify the values and accomplishments Andover Newton seeks to instill in its students.
