“To me, Our Wings Still Shall Fly represents what African Americans are going through today. We are participating in places we haven’t before. We have opportunities we haven’t before. We are coming together as we haven’t before,” said Dana Jennings.
She also notes that being African American is the most salient part of her identity in the classroom because there are few African Americans in MBA programs nationwide. “So I think it’s important for me to speak out, so that we have that diversity of thought,” she said.
“I really want to make sure that I show up in the business space and give people the opportunity to see that women of color, particularly African American women, can thrive in those types of environments,” she said.
Looking to the future, she said she hopes the college becomes more diversified. That is an opportunity where we can grow.
