Centennial Lecture Series: Leading the Way - Loyola and the Desegregation of New Orleans

While much of the South was resisting desegregation in the mid-20th century, Loyola University New Orleans students and faculty actively advocated for social reform and civil rights, making the university a model for other New Orleans institutions, as well as city government.

 

As a part of Loyola’s Centennial Celebration, the university presented “Leading the Way: Loyola and the Desegregation of New Orleans,” a candid discussion about the role Loyola played in the civil rights movement in New Orleans during the 1950s and 60s. The event was held April 10, 2012.
