Author: Williams, Mabel Eleanor Crayton

As Lovinggood noted, the teaching of Classics to African Americans elicited various criticisms. In this 1967 thesis by Tillotson alumna and long-serving Austin public school teacher Mabel Williams, we learn about some of those objections, such as the misalignment of Latin and Greek with the practical needs of Black students.
