Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, n32 p100-101 Sum 2001
Responding to a federal court order to integrate, the University of Alabama admitted Autherine Lucy in 1956. On campus, she was pelted with eggs and threatened with death. After staying locked in a university hall for 3 hours, she was taken away by the police. The following day, trustees suspended Lucy "for her own safety." (SM)
