Description:
Photographs and text from Women of Armstrong display (2007.) From Janet Stone's text: The first African American student to be admitted and graduated from Armstrong was Otis Johnson while Armstrong was still a two-year school in downtown Savannah. By the 1970s, African American students constituted a small but growing presence at the new campus. Among them was Twila Haygood. A founding member of the history department's chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, a national honor society, as well as a founding member of Armstrong's Black American Movement, she brought to Armstrong her personal academic strengths and a commitment to find a way for African American students to become full participants in campus life.
