Homecoming/Reunion Weekend 2020
Rhodes College alumni, friends, and families look forward to gathering each year for Homecoming/Reunion Weekend. This year, like many things, will be different than in the past. While we will not be on campus to enjoy the picnic, football game, reunions, and the All-Alumni Reception, we will have opportunities for our community to connect virtually.

Join Rhodes College History Professor Jeffrey H. Jackson and Rhodes History alumnus Matthew Broussard ’20 for a conversation about Jackson’s new book Paper Bullets, an audacious true story of resisting Nazi occupation.
French artists Lucy Schwob and Suzanne Malherbe devised a PSYOPS campaign to demoralize German troops on their adopted Channel Island home by writing “paper bullets”—insults against Hitler, calls to mutiny, subversive dialogues, bawdy jokes, and poems. Hunted for four years by the secret police, the women covertly distributed their notes to soldiers, even slipping them into German pockets. Better remembered today by their artist names, Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore, they were lesbian partners known for creating what the Nazis called “degenerate art” that challenged gender roles, and Lucy’s father’s family was Jewish. Paper Bullets is an untold World War II story about the galvanizing power of art, resistance, and love.
