  • Civil Rights Endowed Chair | Tougaloo College
    open only to whites They were arrested held in jail overnight and their trial the next day led to a police riot against the crowd assembled outside the courthouse in support A year later Tougaloo students and sociology professor John Salter launched a boycott against downtown merchants in Jackson demanding jobs formation of an interracial committee and an end to racial segregation The merchants and city officials refused to negotiate When several students and Prof Salter sat in at the downtown Woolworth s lunch counter they were met by a white mob the ensuing violence made national headlines Tougaloo president Daniel Beittel joined the sit in an unprecedented step for a college president During the summer of 1963 Tougaloo students and faculty began a series of pray ins in which integrated groups tried to attend Sunday services in white Protestant churches in Jackson Usually they met stone faced church deacons who denied them entrance They also launched a successful campaign that persuaded prominent performers to refuse to appear before segregated audiences in the Jackson fine arts series That autumn Tougaloo chaplain Ed King was the candidate for Lt Governor on the Freedom Vote ballot the mock election held to demonstrate how white officials shut out black voters from real elections While most other colleges in Mississippi would have nothing to do with civil rights going so far as to expel students who were active Tougaloo served as a haven for civil rights activists The College became known as an oasis of freedom where people of all races could talk on a basis of full equality SNCC and CORE workers could meet on campus in a secure setting Mississippi NAACP leader Medgar Evers found support at Tougaloo before his murder in 1963 and Tougaloo now owns his home and plans to develop it in his memory Civil rights activists including Martin Luther King Jr Julian Bond John Lewis and Fannie Lou Hamer galvanized students staff and movement people from around the state in Woodworth Chapel SNCC s Bob Moses worked with Tougaloo officials and the Field Foundation to initiate the Work Study Project a program that enabled young Mississippians to participate in the movement and at the same time earn credit toward a college degree A number of SNCC field secretaries including Hollis Watkins Euvester Simpson Dorie and Joyce Ladner Lafayette Surney and MacArthur Cotton were also Tougaloo students working toward degrees A Tougaloo graduate Lawrence Guyot became chairman of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party which challenged the white segregationist delegation at the national Democratic convention in Atlantic City in 1964 The Free Southern Theater began at Tougaloo in the summer of 1964 in 1965 it produced Shakespeare and In White America across Mississippi and later moved to New Orleans Tougaloo hosted the Meredith marchers on their last night before they entered Jackson in 1966 the last great civil rights march Tougaloo has also paid a price for standing by its principles For decades corporations in Mississippi made no contributions to the College In 1962 the Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission provided files about the College to the White Citizens Council to enlist their aid in investigating and shutting down the College The FBI infiltrated Tougaloo s student body and J Edgar Hoover added Tougaloo to his enemies list The president of Brown University led a campaign that removed Beittel as president for being too pro civil rights Nevertheless more than any other institution in the state and perhaps the nation Tougaloo has acted through the years on behalf of full civil political and social rights for African Americans precisely the goal of the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement As the movement wound down the commitment of Tougaloo graduates to social justice did not waver In 1967 for example Jackson police officers shot and killed a student at nearby Jackson State University Tougaloo students participated in a protest demonstration in Jackson Concerned that their classmates would be caught downtown and arrested after a 10 00 p m police curfew two Tougaloo seniors commandeered the college bus and brought them safely back to campus One of the pair Constance Slaughter now Harvey later became the first black woman to earn a law degree from Ole Miss and subsequently served as Assistant Secretary of State for the state of Mississippi The other Bennie G Thompson became mayor of Bolton Mississippi and since 1993 has served in the U S Congress Today Tougaloo continues to educate African American students and nurtures not only their intellect but also their idealism As a result Tougaloo graduates stand out as people who make a difference once they graduate To cite one example from the recent past in August 2010 Dr Janell Vinson took up duties as pediatrician in Neshoba County Mississippi A Tougaloo graduate she received her M D from Brown University Neshoba County was of course notorious for the murder of the three Civil Rights Movement workers at the beginning of Freedom Summer in 1964 The county has already moved a long way Even so the impact that this young lady will make as its only pediatrician hence not the pediatrician for black folks but for all children black white and Choctaw is revolutionary Her young life illustrates the kind of excellence and commitment that Tougaloo still produces For the past four years The Princeton Review has listed Tougaloo among the Best Liberal Arts Colleges in the Southeast partly owing to its students demonstrated civic commitment after graduation Every day Tougaloo still tries to create the beloved community that was the ultimate transcendent goal of the Civil Rights Movement As part of this commitment it is altogether fitting and proper that Tougaloo College honor the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement and the volunteers and local people who participated in it 3 The Role of the Civil Rights Chair at Tougaloo College Simply establishing a Civil Rights Chair will honor and remember a great cause a magnificent campaign Every time a new recipient is named that will be an occasion
