Throughout the country, on college campuses, in civic venues, and at holiday gatherings, Americans - and New Jerseyans - have been engaging in conversations about race, ethnicity and discrimination. Princeton students have been no exception, with some of their conversations focusing on Woodrow Wilson - his views on race and his legacy as the 13th President of Princeton University, the 34th Governor of New Jersey, and the 28th President of the United States. In response to student concerns, President Christopher L.
