In 1961, the Texas Woman's University's Board of Regents voted to change the admissions policy to allow black women to apply to the university. In 1966, TWU had its first African-American graduates. The exhibit captures this transition time in TWU's history, tells the stories of TWU's first African-American students, and profiles campus life and student activities amidst the Civil Rights Movement and the tumultuous times of the 1960s. The exhibit features photographs, newspaper articles, books and other items that tell the story of our nation's history, including scenes from organized sit-ins and voter registration assemblies, the Freedom Riders and a snapshot of integration among other Texas college campuses.
