Six stories of Black student athletes from early Bates

In honor of Black History Month, we shared a few stories on social media about Black students in the college's early years who participated in athletics. Here are six of their stories.

Jonathan Farrell '20 binds his creative writing yearlong thesis, a series of short stories, written under the guidance of his adviser, Jessica Anthony. He gathered a group of friends in the library at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning to bind his thesis (not quite done but close enough) to find closure. And he asked his friend Stevens "Steve" Shea '22 of Wilson, Wyoming.“It’s weird. Like, I feel like this was something kind of last minute, that I wanted to bind in the end. But they kind of gave me the closure I was so desperately looking for. And since, this thesis isn't really just a semester or year- long like mine was in the end, but it's kind of like all these stories are the amalgamation of my entire time here at Bates and something that I've been fortunate enough to write, and looking back reminded me of everything I've been through.

Another one is a guy trying to think about how you can get a goldfish out of his toilet, and his goldfish is like almost a plastic God sort of thing.

I met him at the beginning of the year, and I didn't really know him at first, but we were rock climbing together. He was always around a lot when I was working on my thesis, which was Saturday nights when the deadline was Sunday morning. And whatever I would write about it, like Johnny, ‘it's all good.’ Like, ‘don't worry about it. You know, you're writing You're doing well.’ You're like, ‘just keep on going.’ And that was something I was so kind of thankful for.”“It's definitely weird that we're all done. I mean, so many seniors are now off campus. And we kind of, I've been thinking a lot like, you know,
