Tuskegee Alum Donates Priceless Relics of History

Tuskegee University has been gifted with a rare look into history. Civil rights activist (and Tuskegee alum) Amelia Boynton Robinson has donated speeches, among other documents, and some 3,000 pictures to the university, the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education reported. On March 7, 1965, she was among the activists to march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, on what has been called “Bloody Sunday.” (Photo: Birmingham News/Tamika Moore /Landov)
