September is the month when we think of school- perhaps our kids or grandkids are returning to the classroom or we think about our own experiences, especially what it was like to go away to college. For Melisande Short-Colomb, who at age 63 finds herself as a college freshman on the campus of Georgetown, going off to college has a whole other level of meaning. You may remember that Georgetown, like many other colleges, recently came to terms with its historical past which included the owning of slaves. To atone for this, the school offered legacy status to descendants of the slaves it owned and sold. Ms. Short-Colomb came to discover in her family history that she was, in fact, one of those descendants. It’s a fascinating story, made all the more compelling as this mother, grandmother and professional chef has decided to take her place among the students in this year’s freshmen class at Georgetown.
