In an effort to celebrate this Black History Month we will be airing little known Black History facts throughout the month. Today we will recognize Autherine Lucy. On February 3rd in 1956, Autherine Lucy attended classes at the University of Alabama as the first Black student admitted. As a result, white students and residents rioted in protest. Lucy was suspended by the school. The university cited “safety concerns” as the reason for her suspension
