First, Say Brother enters cyberspace, reviewing online opportunities for African Americans in the Boston area by presenting a how-to manual on surfing the Internet. Next, a visit with the first black president of Smith College, Ruth Simmons, to hear about her road from the rural South to one of the top academies in the country.
