spotlight.duke.edu/50years

Duke University will hold many events throughout the year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first black students at the school, beginning with this free public reception. Duke and Durham leaders will speak about the five African-American men and women enrolled as undergraduates in 1963 in a program titled "Celebrating the Past, Charting the Future: Commemorating 50 Years of Black Students at Duke." Though Duke was among the last major universities to desegregate, its culture changed drastically as a result of these five pioneers and the black students, faculty and administrators who followed their lead. Admission is free and attire is business casual for the 7 p.m. event. Visit spotlight.duke.edu/50years for extensive resources about the contributions of black students. —Chris Vitiello
