Interview by Peter Rooney

In 2008, Professor of Psychology Elizabeth Aries published Race and Class Matters at an Elite College, about 58 white and black students, half of them affluent, half of them lower-income, during their first year at Amherst. Her new book, Speaking of Race and Class: The Student Experience at an Elite College, written with Richard Berman, reconnects with 55 of these students in their senior year.
