Tomorrow morning the effort of African American students integrating what is now Midwestern State University will be honored with an official state historical marker.
In 1951, a complaint was filed in district court in Wichita Falls on behalf of six African American students who were denied admission to MSU, which was then Hardin Junior College.
In 1954 the US Supreme Court declined to hear the case overruling lower court decisions and the students were finally allowed to attend the college. The last living plaintiff in the case will be at the marker dedication, which is Saturday at 11:00 am near the Ferguson Building located on Comanche Trail.
