Black Man's Burden: William Holtzclaw and the Mississippi HBCU Connection

A two-year program that would bring the history of William Holtzclaw, an important but overlooked black educator, to the institution he founded, to the region, and to the nation.

The topic, Black Man’s Burden: Holtzclaw and The Mississippi HBCU Connection, will allow us the opportunity to integrate the history of the institution into our humanities courses by developing summer faculty workshops; creating curriculum and teaching toolkits; and digitizing the work product. The founder, William H. Holtzclaw, utilized his connection to Booker T. Washington and Tuskegee to implement the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute model to create educational opportunities for African Americans in Mississippi. Holtzclaw was a pioneer of the ‘sustainable agriculture’ movement.
