Summary
"Invisible No More details the long and complex history of people of African descent at South Carolina's flagship university. Essays by twelve scholars explore a broad range of topics, from an examination of the lives of the enslaved men and women who lived and worked on the campus, to the first desegregation during the Reconstruction era, and continuing through the famous 1963 desegregation of the school and its long aftermath. This is the first single volume to examine the presence of Black people at a state university during the eras of slavery, Reconstruction, Civil Rights, Black Power, and Black Lives Matter.A foreword is provided by Valinda W. Littlefield, associate professor of history and African American studies at the University of South Carolina. Henrie Monteith Treadwell, research professor of community health and preventative medicine at Morehouse School of Medicine and one of the first three African American students to attend the university in the twentieth century, provides an afterword"--

"Editors Tyler Parry (University of Nevada, Las Vegas) and Robert Greene II (Claflin University) have organized an edited collection that illuminates the integral role that African Americans have played at the University of South Carolina since its founding. The collection builds upon recent work, both at the University of South Carolina and other college campuses, that highlights the contributions that African Americans have made to these institutions of higher learning. What makes South Carolina College (later UofSC) unique among its peer institutions is the extent to which African Americans have remained integral to the University's story throughout its history. This transcends the era of slavery and includes the fact that during Reconstruction, the University was the only state institution in the South to desegregate. This vital and still underexplored period of the University's history is explored in several essays in the collection. Moreover, Robert Greene's essay, "Before 1963: Race, Education, and the NAACP Desegregation Campaigns at the University of South Carolina," examines the longer story of efforts to desegregate the campus in the twentieth century, a story that begins well before the first Black students were finally admitted in 1963. Later chapters examine the ongoing legacies of desegregation and continuing efforts, and obstacles, to making evident the role of African Americans on the UofSC campus. A final essay from Katharine Thompson Allen and Lydia Mattice Brandt makes a forceful call for the need to engage in deeper acts of racial reconciliation on campus, rather than merely being satisfied with superficial attempts to gloss over the past. The volume concludes with an afterword from Dr. Henrie Monteith Treadwell, one of three African American students who were the first to attend the University of South Carolina in the twentieth century"-- Provided by publisher
