October 1, 2014
Yesterday I sat in on a meeting of BOCAS or “Boys of Color at Allen-Stevenson.” Along with 17 Upper School boys, were teachers Carol Mahida, Andre Duncan, Devin Correa-Spain, Chris Caccamise and alumnus Jonathon Beckles ’06. Like many teachers of my generation, I was greatly moved by Martin Luther King’s call to judge a person by the content of his character and not by the color of his skin. More recently I have wondered about the role of identity politics at the School and of affinity groups like BOCAS. As it was one of the first meetings of the year, the boys were asking themselves a question I had been asking myself: Do we need this? I know these boys rather well and I was not surprised at how thoughtful and articulate their responses were, but I was surprised to learn how important BOCAS was to these boys and to their lives at the School — “I’m more honest here.” “When I was very new to the School, having someone to talk to helped me make a very difficult decision.” “When I’m here, I don’t have to filter what I say.” “It’s a space to speak freely.” “It calls attention to problems that we might share.” “We often face similar problems.” “It’s helped me be more comfortable in my skin.” “Others are indifferent.” “You find allies here.” — and I came away thinking that this affinity group was doing something important, that this was one of the School’s finest moments — not just for the boys in BOCAS but for all of us.
