Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center 



The National Anthem 

Oh, say, can you see by the dawn's early light, 

What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? 

Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight, 

O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming? 

And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, 

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. 

Oh say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave 

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? 

Francis Scott Key 

1779 - 1843 



Lift Every Voice and Sing 

Lift every voice and sing, till earth and heaven ring, 

Ring with the harmonies of liberty; 

Let our rejoicing rise, high as the list'ning skies, 

Let it resound loud as the rolling sea. 

Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us, 

Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us; 

Facing the rising sun of our new day begun, 

Let us march on till victory is won. 

James Weldon Johnson 
1871 - 1938

Commencement Speaker 

Steven Tompkins 




Steven W. Tompkins, a member of the Suffolk County 
Sheriffs Department since 2002, was appointed to serve 
as the Sheriff of Suffolk County on January 22, 2013 by 
the Governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick. 

As the Sheriff of Suffolk County, Tompkins manages all 
operations at the Suffolk County House of Correction, 
the Nashua Street Jail and the Civil Process Division. 
In addition to providing care, custody and rehabilitative 
support for inmates and pre-trial detainees, Tompkins 
also oversees a management, security and administrative staff of over 1,000. 

As the former Chief of External Affairs for the Department, Sheriff Tompkins 
supervised his own division and was a member of his predecessor's nine- person 
Executive Team, which was responsible for the day-to-day management 
of all Sheriffs Department operations. As the Chief of External Affairs, he 
established sustainable partnerships with municipal agencies, neighborhood 
organizations, civic associations, local businesses and crime watch groups 
to increase community engagement in deterring youth crime and improving 
reentry programs. Sheriff Tompkins created the innovative "Common Ground 
Institute," a vocational training and re-entry program that teaches marketable 
vocational skills in a classroom setting and allows inmates to hone those skills 
by renovating public lands and facilities throughout the Suffolk County. One 
of CGI's most unique features is its job placement component for graduates 
with employers who hire with full knowledge of the offender's criminal history. 

His work also focused on youth violence and crime prevention. He created 
the "Choice Program" which sends trained officers into the schools of Boston, 
Chelsea, Winthrop and Revere to help young people to make positive choices 
for future success, while reinforcing the theme of respect for oneself and for 
others. The Officers speak with students about a variety of topics specific to 
today's youths including the dangers of drug use and gang involvement, as well 
as the consequences of criminal activity. Students are also educated about the 
role of government and good citizenship. 



He also oversaw the popular "JailBrake," a program that directly targets youth 
at risk for involvement in the criminal justice system. JailBrake is designed to 
help reduce the rise in violent acts committed by adolescents in Suffolk County, 
and to curtail the increase in the number of young people being incarcerated 
by emphasizing the realities of imprisonment including: lack of control, lack 
of privacy, and responsibility for one's own actions. 

Before assuming his post at the Sheriffs Department, Chief Tompkins served as 
the Director of Marketing and Public Affairs for the Dimock Community Health 
Center. He served for ten years at AT&T Cable, prior to its purchase by Comcast 
Cablevision, where he produced scores of television programs, industrial 
packages and public service announcements for nonprofit organizations and 
politicians. While at AT&T, he also served as a member of the communications 
cadre for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA,) where he was 
a field producer for the agency's internal television network and press liaison 
for FEMA's New England Region. 

Sheriff Tompkins holds a Bachelor's Degree in Communications from Boston 
College and a Master's Degree in Public Affairs from the University of 
Massachusetts. 

He is also an engaged community leader and respected advocate, serving as 
Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees for Roxbury Community College and a 
former Board Chair of the Sportsmen's Tennis Club. In 2011, Tompkins was 
appointed by Governor Patrick to serve as a Board member of the Boston 
Finance Commission. Sheriff Tompkins also serves on the Foundation Board 
and recently stepped down as chair of the Community Service Board for the 
Dimock Center, a Roxbury-based community health center that provides access 
to quality medical and mental health care and human services. 




Community Service Award Recipient 

John Wilson 

During the mid-i940s, John Wilson began to discover 
works by African American artists and was further 
stimulated by Alain Locke's treatise on art. These 
two things encouraged him to visually document the 
consequences of oppression and to offer a means to 
resisting it or exposing the vile social conditions that 
caused it. After reading Richard Wright's Uncle Tom's 
Children, he was ready to produce pieces that would have 
an impact on a social and economic revolution led by African Americans. 

Looking for a tangible visual form, Wilson considered mural painting. While 
at the Boston Museum School, he applied for a fellowship to travel to Mexico 
to study with muralists, but at the time, the fellowships were approved only for 
Paris. He had not yet "discovered" the work of other African American artists 
but thought the Mexicans were doing in Mexico what he wanted to do in the 
United States. He revered Jose Clemente Orozco's work and philosophy and 
read everything that he could about him. He was impressed by the theatricality 
and starkness in Orozco's paintings and murals and was "inspired by his sense 
of profound compassion for the oppressed Indians and peasants of Mexico. 
Orozco's work seemed less driven by a didactic political ideology than the work 
of David Alfaro Siqueiros and Diego Rivera." Wilson was not to go to Mexico 
yet. First he landed in Paris, where he studied painting with Ferdinand Leger. 

Back in the United States in 1950, he applied for and received a Whitney 
fellowship to study in Mexico, where he remained until 1956, supplementing his 
income as a graphic artist. In Mexico, he studied fresco painting and responded 
again to the conditions of poverty and despair. In the 1940s, he created a series of 
ink and wash drawings on the themes of lynching and oppression. The "Incident" 
series (1946) chronicled the reality of a black man being captured and lynched 
by a mob of white men. Wilson says that his black-and-white ink drawings and 
prints were done in a period when he was very angry with the unequal treatment 
of blacks in the United States. Deliver Us From Evil (1943), a study for a mural, 
attempted to bring some understanding to what life was like for black people 
in America. The Trial (1952), which was done in Mexico, attacked the notion of 
white supremacy, a philosophy that he says attempts to dehumanize all black 



people and uses the technique of lynching to destroy black men, in particular. 
The falseness of racism to disguise one's humanism, Wilson says, is exhibited 
in this composition because both judge and jury wear white masks. 

Wilson has subsequently created sculptural pieces that do not possess the 
hard-edge realism of his early works. These later works are more rounded in 
their quiet lyricism and represent a sense of hope rather than despair. In the 
1930s and 1940s, he was driven by a personal sense of living in a society that 
dehumanized him, when racism was blatantly clear and the only references to 
black people were negative stereotypical images in movies and other popular 
arts. These images were at odds with life in his black community. 

Wilson is also attracted to the timeless, deeply human qualities of Asian and 
Egyptian art, specifically, Buddhist figures that suggest for him a kind of 
universal consciousness. He says that African sculpture, like Asian sculpture, 
possesses a colorful and intense energy that is summed up in a simple head or 
figure. These figures contain a complex kind of truth. For example, Wilson says 
that "Baule masks and figures hold a deep black density, a built in vitality, a life 
force that imbues the statue with power, like a bomb which is a simple shape, but 
has explosive power." Power comes from an intangible inner force and seems 
to emanate from the statues. His earlier drawings such as Angry Man had this 
density, but later, the two-dimensional works weren't enough for him, and he 
began to explore three-dimensional pieces. Eternal Presence or Monumental 
Head (1987), a seven-foot head of a black person that can be interpreted as male 
or female, was cast in bronze and placed at the Elma Lewis Center for the Arts 
in Boston. Wilson chose bronze because he wanted the head to last "forever." 
Another work, Father and Child (1990), also seven feet high, shows a seated 
man and child reading a book and is installed at Roxbury Community College. 
This piece was inspired by a print that Wilson completed in the 1960s, entitled 
Father and Child Reading. Wilson conceives many of his sculptures from his 
prints, continuing his signature of dark, dense shapes.

( _J^/£^demic Regalia 



The caps, gowns and hoods of the academic procession date back to the Middle 
Ages when they were common dress for scholars. In the Twelfth Century, monks 
and students wore them to keep warm from the damp and drafty European castles 
and halls of learning. 

The Bachelor's gown has a pleated front and long, pointed sleeves. The Master's 
gown, which may be worn open, is distinguished by its long square sleeves. The 
Doctor's gown is trimmed with velvet panels and has three velvet bars on the bell 
shaped sleeves. 

The hood provides the color, contrast and symbolism of the procession. Certain 
colors became associated with particular areas of knowledge. For example, the hood 
border worn by a doctor of theology was red, a color associated with the Catholic 
Church; a medical doctor wore a green border, which relates to the healing powers 
of medicinal herbs. 

In Europe, a uniform color system was never developed. However, in the United 
States, an intercollegiate committee meeting in 1895, decided upon uniform color 
standards, assigning a specific color to each field of study.

.J^oxbury Community College 



Years of dreaming and planning came to life in 1973, when Roxbury Community 
College opened its doors in the Grove Hall area of Roxbury. Despite less than ideal 
surroundings - its location was a former car dealership - Roxbury Community 
College's dedicated faculty, staff, and administration served the educational needs 
of four hundred students. The College's mission then, as it is now, was to provide 
higher education to those Boston residents who found most other avenues to higher 
education closed. 

In 1975, growth was the impetus for a move to 424 Dudley Street, a former nursing 
home. This move permitted the expansion and strengthening of academic programs 
and student services. The College continued to grow, which precipitated another 
move in 1982, to the former site of Boston State College on Huntington Avenue. As 
the College continued to shift its service base to meet an expanding enrollment, the 
goal to establish a permanent home for Roxbury Community College in the heart of 
the communities it served, remained strong. 

With much anticipation, Roxbury Community College built its new home as the 
cornerstone of the Southwest Corridor in the Spring of 1988. This fifteen-acre 
campus includes a state-of-the-art Media Arts Building, Academic Building, 
Administration Building, Student Center, and the Reggie Lewis Track and 
Athletic Center. 

A global village, Roxbury Community College's multicultural and ethnically 
diverse student population has set it apart from other community colleges 
in the Commonwealth. Although most of our students are from Boston and 
surrounding communities, many come from all over the world: North America, 
Central America, South America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the 
Caribbean. 

With renewed commitment, Roxbury Community College continues its legacy 
of providing educational opportunities for all who enter its doors.
