Thanks for uncovering the dirt that has been going on at the Kennedy Center for years (“The Big White Box,” 10/10). I remember the first day I started working at the Kennedy Center as a press intern. I thought, What an honor to have the opportunity to work for such a prestigious organization. However, after the first day on the job, I noticed the racial makeup of the center, and it was not a pretty sight. To this day, I want to believe I was selected based on my communications experience and education, not my race. However, I was probably just selected to fill the Kennedy Center quota. Another female minority to add to the list.
