Harvard’s Student-Run Newspaper Elects First Black Woman President

-

For the first time in the history of Harvard University’s student-run newspaper, The Harvard Crimson, a black woman will serve as its president.

Crimson is one of the oldest college newspapers in the United States, continuously published since 1873. Last Monday, 20-year-old Kristine E. Guillaumea, a joint African American Studies and History, and Literature concentrator and newspaper’s Central Administration reporter, was elected to succeed its current president Derek G. Xiao.

Guillaumea is well known for covering Harvard’s presidential search earlier this year and interviewing the school’s two successive presidents.

“I have the utmost confidence in the 146th Guard’s ability to carry on our proud mission of covering and informing Harvard and its affiliates,” Xiao said. “I could not be more excited to see the direction the next President, Managing Editor, and Business Manager will take The Crimson in 2019.”

Along with Guillaumea, the newspaper has elected Angela N. Fu as its managing director overlooking various sections of the newspaper.
