This Day in History

On February 10, 1835 the Oberlin College board of trustees passed a resolution to admit and educate black students alongside white students, making it the first college in the country to do so.

Roland Baumann, a retired archivist, writes in his new book Constructing Black Education at Oberlin College, "Time has confirmed the 1835 resolution as one of the milestones in the struggle for racial equality in the United States."
