In September 1961, Ford Greene, Ralph Long Jr., and Lawrence Williams became Georgia Tech’s first African American matriculants. In June 1965, Ronald Yancey became the Institute’s first African American graduate.

Join us for a morning panel conversation with these four men as we explore the racial history and progress of our campus community at the 11th Annual Diversity Symposium, ‘Georgia Tech's Racial Diversity Journey: Recognizing Our Past, Acknowledging Our Present, and Charting Our Future,’ on September 4 at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center.

These trailblazers will also be honored with the dedication of bronze statues to be permanently affixed in Harrison Square and the G. Wayne Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons to mark their significance in the history of Georgia Tech.
