      LIBRARY LECTURE: AUBURN UNIVERSITY DESEGREGATES

      Sesquicentennial Lecture

      See this link
      http://www.auburn.edu/communications_marketing/150/lecture.html
      for a complete schedule of the Sesquicentennial Lecture Series.

      AUBURN UNIVERSITY DESEGREGATES

      Speaker: Martin T. Olliff. He received his Ph.D. in History from
      Auburn University and currently directs the Archives of Wiregrass
      History and Culture at Troy University, Dothan Campus, and is author of
      "'Just Another Day on the Plains:' The Desegregation of Auburn
      University," which appeared in the ALABAMA REVIEW (April 2001).

      On January 4, 1964, Harold A. Franklin became the first
      African-American to enroll at Auburn University. His action was a
      defining moment in the confrontations between pro- and anti-segregation
      sentiments within the university community, among the citizens of
      Alabama, between black applicants and the university, and between the
      federal courts and state government. It also represented a signal event
      in the life of the young man who broke the color barrier at Auburn.

      Harold A. Franklin received a bachelor's degree in history from
      Alabama State University, enrolled as Auburn University's first
      African-American student two years later, and in 1974 earned his
      master's degree from the Graduate School of International Studies at the
      University of Denver.

      Date and Time: SEPTEMBER 12 at 4 p.m.

      Location: The Special Collections and Archives Department located on
      the GROUND FLOOR of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.

      Sponsored by: The Auburn University Libraries, The Center for Arts and
      Humanities, Auburn University Outreach, and Auburn University
      Sesquicentennial Committee.
