They’re Dr. and Dr. Morrow. Dr. Morrow (the wife) is teaching a senior seminar next semester. I must take it to say I finally had a Black professor at UGA.
Today I went to a wonderful program hosted by the Zeta Pi Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and the Zeta Psi Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta entitled “In His Memory, In Her Honor.” In my years of being at the University of Georgia it is a tradition for the Alphas to hold a program called, “In His Memory” that honors the first Black male student at the University Dr. Hamilton Holmes (he is an Alpha). Dr. Holmes helped integrate the school along with Mrs. Charlayne Hunter-Gault during February 1961 marking a major change in the state of Georgia’s secondary education system. Although this is the first year I have ever attended I believe this is the first time Mrs. Hunter-Gault’s name has been attached to the program (hence In Her Honor) as she is a Delta.
The program featured two charter members of the Zeta Psi chapter, one charter member of Zeta Pi, and the often forgotten Mary Francis Early who was the FIRST Black graduate of UGA. Seeing how I am taking a Modern African American Experience and Civil Rights Movement classes it was interesting hearing what life was in Athens back in 1961 and 1969. Three of the panelist discussed how united the Black students were as there were so few of them (one said the number fifteen) and how anytime they a male saw a Black girl walking alone he would make it his job to escort her back to her room. Hearing these people discuss how their white roommates moved out upon discovering they were Black just seemed so sad. I’ve only had one white roommate in my years of going to this school and never experienced this exact behavior, but there have always been times where I felt like some white students still weren’t very welcoming of my presence.
I was thinking about this today and really want to say it to someone who questions me.
It’s either MAC Pink Pigeon or MAC Pink Nouveau. Maybe I’m wrong, but they’re in that range. Does anyone know?
