A Tribute to NCSU Leaders Opening Doors to Diversity
“Opening Doors: The Lives and Legacies of Dr. Lawrence M. Clark and Dr. Augustus M. Witherspoon” is a documentary about two NC State educators who were among the first African-Americans to hold leadership positions on campus. Directed by Dr. Sheila Smith McKoy, director of the African American Cultural Center, this video features comments from colleagues and students about the impact of these two scientists and leaders. They used their roles to make NC State a more inclusive place starting in the 1960s.
“I don’t think you will find a more compassionate team of men who were so concerned about the details of life at North Carolina State for every single person who walked through the door,” said Dr. Smith McKoy. “They weren’t just engaged in diversity efforts for people of African descent. They were engaged in it for campus-wide endeavors because they knew how important it was for us to move forward differently at North Carolina State University.”

Author and Athlete Speaks at Meredith
Gwendolyn Oxenham talks about her book, “Finding the Game,” and her advice on chasing dreams. She offered advice about how to pursue goals, and what to do when a long-held dream changes. Oxenham was a successful college soccer player at Duke University when the U.S. women’s professional soccer league folded, causing her to shift her plan of playing professionally to a new goal of becoming a writer.
“It is the loss of one dream that allows you to create a new one,” Oxenham said.
Her audience at Meredith College included many on campus who had read her book as Meredith’s choice for the Summer Reading Program in 2013. Prior to Oxenham’s lecture, the Meredith community was able to play pickup soccer with the author. During her visit to campus, she also met with student athletes and aspiring writers.
View her talk at these times on Channel 18:
