First African American to enroll at the University of Alabama following successful litigation under the historic 1954 Brown v. Board of Education ruling. She began classes on February 3, 1956: however, after three days of tumultuous demonstrations, on February 6, she was suspended and later expelled by the University's Board of Trustees. The expulsion was rescinded in April of 1988. In December 1991, Ms. Lucy completed the requirements for her Master's in Elementary Education. This achievement was the culmination of her original dream to attend The University of Alabama and paved the way for countless others to fulfill theirs. Autherine Lucy's courage made The University of Alabama truly "one for all."
