Catching up with ... Joyce Ladner: Portrait of Joyce Ladner, Sociologist and Activist
Black Issues in Higher Education, v22 n6 p25 May 2005
From her late teenage years as a civil rights activist to an interim presidency at Howard University, Dr. Joyce A. Ladner has lived as heroic and accomplished a life as any scholar of her generation. A 1964 graduate of Tougaloo College, Ladner, in her college days, with her sister, Dorie Ladner, and other students from the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), coordinated civil rights protests in Mississippi. She was even arrested and jailed for her activism. Her Tougaloo education and civil rights experiences as her foundation, Ladner would become a noted sociologist and the only woman to run Howard University.
