Mission Statement

This project (White Violence/Black Resistance: The Role of Women at Prairie View A&M University) is focused on uncovering the presence of women in relation to the White Violence/Black Resistance who attended or worked for Prairie View A & M University throughout its development. We are planning to choose 1-3 women from every thirty years that were involved either directly or indirectly with movements related to women’s suffrage, civil rights movement of the 1960’s, New Negro Movement, Sit-in’s, Black Women’s Club Movement and/or the desegregation of schools (e.g., 1930-1960). This project is intended to highlight women who have gone unrecognized in the numerous movements that have been presented as male dominated.
