College Historian

Dream Week is underway at Centenary College. The programs are designed to honor the legacy and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Centenary’s historian and emeritus professor of English, Lee Morgan, spoke Tuesday about integration in Shreveport and on Centenary’s campus. He taught at the college for 44 years, and called it an "island of liberalism" in a conservative city. The first African Americans didn’t enroll until 1965, but he said, it could have happened much earlier.
