Alexis (Lexie) Freeman grew up outside in Michigan and is now a junior at Amherst College in Massachusetts. After being one of the few African American students in elementary and high school, Lexie was attracted to Amherst College in part because of their commitment to recruiting and maintaining a racially and otherwise diverse student body. Lexie has a deep interest in education and policy. She is also active in her church. Lexie is also a longtime student of how race works! She brings that long-time racial lens to her work with EmbraceRace.
