Amber Black oral history with Daniel Chard
Description:
Southampton native Amber Black is a fourth generation UMass alumna. Following in the footsteps of her parents Bruce and Dorothy Eastman (1964), her grandfather James Lewell Williams (1924), and her great-grandfather Frank Oliver Williams (1890), Black earned a UMass B.A. in Anthropology with University Honors in 1990. In this interview, she discusses assessing college at UMass versus small liberal arts college, the importance of UMass in her family, attending UMass basketball games and undergraduate parties as a high school student during the 1980s, and her experiences as an undergraduate and Commonwealth Scholar in the late 1980s. Black also explains how her UMass education informs her current work as Public Relations and Technology Coordinator for the Easthampton-based Rosenberg Fund for Children.
