Exhibition Board: Reuben Shannon Lovinggood and the Classics

Exhibition board featuring writings of Reuben Shannon Lovinggood on classics

Reuben Shannon Lovinggood served as Chair of Greek and Latin at Wiley College in Marshall, TX before assuming the inaugural Presidency of Samuel Huston College in Austin in 1900. That same year Lovinggood authored a pamphlet making an impassioned argument in favour of Classical education for African Americans. Lovinggood’s own writings give us unusually good access to contemporary perspectives on Black education, and we are fortunate that several documents from Sam Huston during this period survive to this day.
