        Charlotte Hawkins Brown

        In 1902, during the worst years of Jim Crow segregation, Charlotte Hawkins Brown founded the Palmer Memorial Institute in North Carolina. This segment from The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow shows how, despite pressures to give African American youth only an industrial education, Brown fought the system and strived to provide her students with the best academic education available.
