Harakiri (1962) Directed by Masaki Kobayashi Starring Tatsuya Nakadai Japanese with English subtitles 2 hrs 13 mins, rated NR Following the collapse of his clan, an unemployed samurai (Tatsuya Nakadai) arrives at the manor of Lord Iyi, begging to be allowed to commit ritual suicide on the property. Iyi’s clansmen, believing the desperate ronin is merely angling for a new position, try to force his hand and get him to eviscerate himself—but they have underestimated his beliefs and his personal brand of honor. Winner of the Cannes Film Festival’s Special Jury Prize, Harakiri, directed by Masaki Kobayashi is a fierce evocation of individual agency in the face of a corrupt and hypocritical system.

British Comedy Lettice and Lovage, by the Writer of Amadeus
Leading tours through an utterly boring English mansion, Lettice Douffet chooses to "enliven" the truth with fanciful fabrications. Sent by the Preservation Trust to investigate, Lotte Schoen is not amused and fires her. But stoic Lotte finds herself drawn to fanciful Lettice's romantic world-view, and the two women forge an unlikely friendship that helps them cope with their dreary modern lives.

If you are one of millions who devoured Daniel J. Brown’s bestseller, The Boys in the Boat, and didn’t want it to end, you are invited to a presentation, “The Boys in the Boat: The Rest of the Story,” an insider’s epilogue to the book. Jim Pocock, great nephew of the book’s central figure, legendary racing shell builder George Yeoman Pocock, will speak on Tuesday, June 7, 7:30-9:00 p.m. at Trinitarian Congregational Church, 35 Cochituate Road, Wayland. Admission is free. George Pocock has been called “arguably the single most influential man in crew racing for over half a century,” revered mentor to thousands of oarsmen and dozens of coaches throughout the U.S. Jim Pocock will share his personal memories of his great uncle of the development of the sport of rowing in America, and will tell many rich stories not found in the book. Attendees will be especially well-rewarded by reading The Boys in the Boat beforethe presentation. The Boys in the Boat is the true story of nine small-town University of Washington student-athletes and their coach who surmounted prohibitive odds to win the right to represent the United States in the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games. The upstart Huskies went on to surprise a deep field of crews that included the vaunted host country, powering their George Pocock-crafted vessel, Husky Clipper, to capture the gold medal in the marquee eight-oared shells race and upend Adolph Hitler’s plan to use rowing to showcase the athletic and cultural supremacy of National Socialist Germany. Jim Pocock grew up in a family of racing shell builders that goes back four generations. His grandfather, Dick Pocock, built shells exclusively for Yale University for 40 years, while great uncle George supplied every other college in America from his workshop in Seattle. Between them, the brothers built 21 Olympic gold medal-winning racing shells. Jim Pocock served as senior pastor of Trinitarian Congregational Church in Wayland for 12 years before departing in 2011 to serve as counselor to the president of Gordon College, a Christian liberal arts school in Wenham, MA. He and his wife, Beth, reside in Salem. Their son, Nate, is a 2005 graduate of Wayland High School. Jim is a 1975 graduate of Bucknell University, where he was captain and coach of the rugby team. Presentation host Trinitarian Congregational Church was founded in 1828 as Evangelical Trinitarian Church of East Sudbury, adopting the present name Trinitarian Congregational Church in 1896. The church continues to be a voice for evangelical Christianity, with active ministries to the Wayland community and surrounding towns; Web site www.tccwayland.org. Presentation sponsor Wayland-Weston Rowing Association, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501( c)(3) educational organization founded in 2000. WWRA operates the varsity crew team for girls and boys enrolled at Wayland and Weston high schools, and provides other programs for youth and adults who row for recreation, fitness and competition.

The HBSAAA Leadership Team looks forward to hosting you at the Spring Reunion Reception to be held on campus Saturday, June 4th, 2016 at 2:30 PM. The reception has proven to be an excellent opportunity to reconnect with African American alumni, faculty, and current students. We hope you will help us continue this tradition. Notably, this Spring, there are additional sights and programs the HBSAAA has encouraged African American alums to take part in during the reunion celebrations. Please read below more more information. You are invited to attend a group discussion being held during reunions on June 3, 2016 by the Life and Leadership After HBS initiative. This past winter, a survey was sent to most alumni asking about their personal and professional paths after their HBS graduation. As a result, the Life and Leadership team would like to learn more by talking directly with alumni. The groups will last for 1.5 hours and we have tried to schedule it at a time when they will not interfere with reunion activities. Discussion Group Schedule: Friday, June 3: 8:30am - 10:00am, HBS campus location Groups 1 and 2: alumni of color If you are interested in attending, please complete this short survey by Friday, May 20th: http://bit.ly/HBSJuneReunion We will communicate with everyone who expresses an interest in attending, regardless of whether they have been selected. The insights from the discussion groups will be used in conjunction with our survey findings to inform curriculum, support all HBS alumni, and advance faculty research. The findings will be shared with you and the entire HBS community. Please consider joining us to share your experiences with other MBAs. Sincerely, Robin J. Ely Diane Doerge Wilson Professor of Business Administration Senior Associate Dean for Culture and Community African American Artist Featured on Campus Several (4) large pieces of sculptured art are on display throughout the campus, as part of a new program where artists are lending their work to the School. There is a piece erected on Spangler lawn, directly across from Cumnock Health Center, created by Hank Willis Thomas, a young African American artist. The piece is titled "Earnest and Ruth" and is designed to be touched, photographed and even sat in! To take a deeper look into Thomas's work, click here for an article written by Celia McGee (wife of Professor Henry McGee). Earn Class Credit with a Gift to Baker Minority Fellowship Lastly, the HBSAAA encourages alumni to direct any annual gift that you have made or plan to make to HBSAAA's George P. Baker Minority Fellowship, which helps reduce the cost of attending HBS and, in some cases, attracts qualified students who might not otherwise be able to attend HBS. Please note, this fellowship has benefited primarily African and African-Americans attending HBS. Further, you will receive reunion class credit for this restricted donation. Importantly, supporting the HBSAAA George P. Baker Minority Fellowship Fund is easy. Simply designate "George P. Baker Minority Fellowship Fund:" As a memo for check contributions In the "notes" section for electronic contributions: http://give.hbs.edu With your verbal instructions for phone contributions: (617) 495-6881 or toll free: 1-877-GIVETOHBS Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to ensure that your gift is directed appropriately. 2016 Fellowship Dinner Front row: Amber James (JD/MBA 2019), Nancy L.

Baker Minority Fellowship was established in 1978 by the HBSAAA in honor of George P. Baker, who received the Association's Distinguished Service Award that year for his contributions to increasing African Americans' access and admission to graduate schools of business. Dr. Baker was Professor Emeritus and Former Dean of the Faculty of Harvard Business School. He was an international authority on transportation, and served on the boards of many corporations including Mobil Oil, Lockheed Aircraft, the Jewel Companies, American Research and Development Corporation, and the First National Bank of Boston. He was also a consultant to many major airlines and railroads, as well as to the Secretaries of Defense, State and Commerce. He held honorary degrees from a number of colleges, including Harvard, and was appointed one of ten distinguished Americans by the President’s Commission on Postal Organization. This fund was endowed in 1981 and has grown to more than four million dollars. Over the years it has supported 162 students, and last year five more students received fellowships. Many alumni have continued to support this fellowship, which supports minority MBA students, with additional gifts over the years. Alumni who direct their annual or reunion gifts to the Baker Minority Fellowship will continue to receive credit both for their reunion class participation as well as for donating to the Fellowship. Best regards, Ken Powell President, HBSAAA
