Martha Chapman Gallery
Wofford's Desegregation Decade
February 7 - March 28, 2013
The Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery
This exhibition is part of Re:Thinking Education, Wofford's Year of the Liberal Arts.
The decision by Wofford's Board of Trustees to admit all qualified applicants regardless of race came after a period of careful study, and in the South Carolina of 1964, proved to be controversial. While the state's public colleges had desegregated in the previous year, no private colleges in South Carolina were integrated. Wofford's announcement made headlines around the state, and brought both applause and strong condemnation. These documents and photographs from the College Archives tell part of the story of desegregation at Wofford, from the actions of the board through the arrival of the first African-American administrator and faculty member to the activities of the college's earliest African-American students.
