  • Black Colleges of Atlanta, The (GA) (College History Series)

    By 1865, although Atlanta and the Confederacy still lay wounded in the wake of the Union victory, black higher education began its thrust for recognition. Some of the first of the American colleges formed specifically for the education of black students were founded in Atlanta, Georgia. These schools continue, over a century later, to educate, train and inspire. Through an engaging collection of images and informative captions, their story begins to unfold. Atlanta University was the pioneer college for blacks in the state of Georgia. Founded in 1865, it was followed by Morehouse College in 1867, Clark University in 1869, and Spelman and Morr...

  • The Morehouse Mystique: Lessons to Develop Black Men

    More than just an institutional biography, this story of Morehouse College discusses how the all-male African American school in Atlanta continues to build its legacy as an institution that develops its students into successful men of the highest caliber. Though Morehouse offers its students an excellent liberal arts education in an environment that is conducive to academic, social, and spiritual growth, the book posits that it has something more to explain its extraordinary success rate. The analysis of this quality—deemed “the Morehouse Mystique”—includes an appraisal of the challenges of being black and male in America and examines...

  • Schooling Jim Crow: The Fight for Atlanta's Booker T. Washington High School and the Roots of Black Protest Politics (Carter G. Woodson Institute Series)

    In 1919 the NAACP organized a voting bloc powerful enough to compel the city of Atlanta to budget $1.5 million for the construction of schools for black students. This victory would have been remarkable in any era, but in the context of the Jim Crow South it was revolutionary. Schooling Jim Crow tells the story of this little-known campaign, which happened less than thirteen years after the Atlanta race riot of 1906 and just weeks before a wave of anti-black violence swept the nation in the summer after the end of World War I. Despite the constant threat of violence, Atlanta’s black voters were able to force the city to build five black gra...

  • Undaunted By The Fight: Spelman College And The Civil Rights Movement, 1957-1967 (Voices of the African Diaspora)

    Undaunted by the Fight is a study of small but dedicated, group of Spelman College students and faculty who, between 1957 and 1967 risked their lives, compromised their grades, and jeopardized their careers to make Atlanta and the South a more just and open society. Lefever argues that the participation of Spelman's students and faculty in the Civil Rights Movement represented both a continuity and a break with the institution's earlier history. On the one hand their actions were consistent with Spelman's long history of liberal arts and community service; yet, on the other hand; as his research documents; their actions represented a break wi...

  • Black Politics in New Deal Atlanta (The John Hope Franklin Series in African American History and Culture)

    When Franklin Roosevelt was elected president in 1932, Atlanta had the South's largest population of college-educated African Americans. The dictates of Jim Crow meant that these men and women were almost entirely excluded from public life, but as Karen Ferguson demonstrates, Roosevelt's New Deal opened unprecedented opportunities for black Atlantans struggling to achieve full citizenship. Black reformers, often working within federal agencies as social workers and administrators, saw the inclusion of African Americans in New Deal social welfare programs as a chance to prepare black Atlantans to take their rightful place in the political and ...

  • Walking Integrity

    As a clergyperson, educator, ecumenist, counselor, civil rights activist, and author, Benjamin Elijah Mays achieved national and international renown. After earning a Ph.D. in Christian theology from the University of Chicago, Mays became Dean of the Howard University School of Divinity. Serving in that capacity from 1934 to 1940, Mays's contributions turned the Divinity School into a nationally recognized institution, and earned him an invitation to become the sixth president of Atlanta's Morehouse College. In that post until his retirement in 1967, he inspired generations of students to work for racial justice in the nation that denied them...
