“It's not about memorizing dates in history or calculations in math. You're practicing and cultivating what it means to be a citizen with virtues.”

—Lerone A. Martin, Ph.D.

Dr. Martin of Washington University was this year's guest speaker at the Bond Lecture, which is held every February in observance of Black History Month. The Erik Lyons Bond Lecture is named in honor of the first African American graduate to complete all eight grades at Saint Louis Country Day School.
