Today in Black History

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.
