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.”

Meredith Professor Speaks on Christianity Before and After the Civil War
When did Christianity really take hold in enslaved African American communities? Was it prior to the Civil War, as is commonly believed, or after emancipation?
Meredith Associate Professor of History Dan Fountain’s presentation, “Slavery, Civil War, & Salvation,” used primary sources including testimony of slaves to explore this question in Meredith College’s 2014 Faculty Distinguished Lecture.
Hear him talk about his findings including showing that many more African-Americans became Christians during and after the Civil War than before the war. “Freedom, rather than slavery, proved to be the greatest force for conversion among African-Americans in the South,” Fountain said.
Dan Fountain’s research interests focus on the nineteenth century United States and the U.S. South with a specific interest in the history of slavery and race. He is author of “Slavery, Civil War, & Salvation: African American Slaves and Christianity, 1830-1870,” published by LSU Press in 2010. He has appeared on NBC’s Who Do You Think You Are?, helping actor Blair Underwood explore his ancestry and on the History Channel series The States.
