HBCUs in the Civil Rights Movement

Beverly Wade Hogan

Beverly Wade Hogan is the 13th president of Mississippi’s Tougaloo College. The first woman to lead the institution since its 1869 founding, Hogan delves into the historical and social importance of Historically Black Colleges and Universities like Tougaloo – first to educate freedmen, and later as an academic refuge for black scholars who were denied admission elsewhere. As Hogan shares, Tougaloo played a significant role in the civil rights movement, beginning with noted segregation protestors “the Tougaloo Nine.”
