We'll be joined by Shaw University President Dr. Paulette Dillard and MPT Senior Vice President and Chief Content Officer Travis Mitchell for an interactive discussion. Shaw University started in December 1865 with a bible class for newly freed slaves in Raleigh, North Carolina. Fighting vicious prejudice in the aftermath of the Civil War, Shaw rises to become a coeducational college, a medical school, a law school, and a divinity school. But Jim Crow and "separate but equal" segregation laws force the university to curtail its ambitions. Shaw rises again during the civil rights movement as the birthplace of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Today, as the oldest historically black college in the South, Shaw continues to face challenges to its mission and its existence.https://ovee.itvs.org/screenings/iajh3MPT Events Teamevents@mpt.orgfalseMM/DD/YYYY
