Autherine J. Lucy becomes the first black student to attend the University of Alabama.
She was expelled three days later "for her own safety" in response to threats from a mob. In 1992 Autherine Lucy Foster graduated from the University with a Master’s Degree in Education. The same day, her daughter, Grazia Foster, graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Corporate Finance.
We salute to day a true Heroine of her time,Who paved the way and opened the door to Higher Education for younger brothers and sisters.
