Despite a pandemic, Princeton Birding Society spreads its wings

This Earth Day, the ‘Prince’ sat down with members of the Princeton Birding Society, a group of students dedicated to ornithological education, conservation efforts, and the practice of birding. “Birding is a really unique intersection of what some might see as a hobby that's actually fueling really important discoveries about bird ecology and evolution,” said Cassie Stoddard, faculty advisor to PBS.

In 2020, Princeton promised anti-racist action. Five years prior, the Black Justice League had offered a blueprint.

In this interactive feature, The Daily Princetonian recounts how the Black Justice League’s 2015 Nassau Hall sit-in forced a reckoning with racism on campus. We trace the group’s activism to the present day, from the removal of Woodrow Wilson’s name to ongoing calls for an anti-racist curriculum.
