The head of Interlochen Center for the Arts says he was shocked by racial hate mail sent to one of the school’s employees.
Three typewritten letters came anonymously to a residence hall counselor, who is black. Interlochen’s President, Jeff Kimpton, says it appears the letters were written by someone on campus.
“We’ve never had an incident that we can recall on this campus of this kind,” says Kimpton. He says reading the letters made him almost ill, “thinking that this could happen at this place.”
