Allen University and Benedict College

Students from both historically black colleges and universities were the foot soldiers of the Civil Rights Movement. Students from Allen University and Benedict College led and participated in marches, sit-ins, and lawsuits in the struggle for equal justice. Today, it is a part of Columbia SC 63’s mission to interview and record the memories of Allen and Benedict Alumni to further document the history of the Civil Rights Movement in Columbia.
