Black Alumni Network

Cultivating Culture, Commitment, and Community

Nearly three dozen Black and African American alumni have stepped forward to create the Black Alumni Network, a new organization that promises to strengthen and deepen the Episcopal community and support its students and alumni alike.

Mission Statement written by Judellia Cole ’99, Aliyah Griffith ’11, Louis Tambue ’17, and Blair Taylor ’99

“Our goal is to empower current students and alumni through mindful engagement, networking, advocacy, and mentorship in order to create a community of alumni that not only embodies the EHS principles of moral courage, courageous action, and intellectual courage but also engages the EHS community at large, fostering cultural awareness.”
The network represents an exciting opportunity to build and strengthen relationships with and among Episcopal’s Black alumni, and to find ways to better support Black students during their time on the Hill as well upon their entry to college and careers. If you are interested in learning more about the network, please contact Rick Wilcox,

    • This history of Episcopal's integration, filmed and produced by Luke David '93, debuted on November 9, 2018, as part of Episcopal's commemoration of the School's integration in 1968.
