Our Story

With the partnership of Nneka Dennie (’13), and the editorial teamwork provided by Jallicia Jolly (’14) and Kenny Jean (’14), the first issue was born in 2014.

Since then, Kaleido[scopes] has continued to draw from the rich learning and creative experiences of our students, and to offer our knowledge of the African Diaspora and Africana Studies through our unique viewpoint: as undergraduates navigating life and learning in the Purple Valley of the Berkshires.
