The Baltimore Museum of Art exhibits "Contemporary Negro Art."

1948
Portrait painter and illustrator Laura Wheeling Waring dies.

1956
Over violent opposition, Autherine Lucy is the first African American admitted to the University of Alabama.

A half million New York City students stay home to protest de facto segregation.
