Document type: Oral history
Accessibility: Free Only
Repository: Robert C. Maynard Institute for Journalism Education
Collection: Robert C. Maynard Oral History Collection
Description: Before she could learn journalism, she had to integrate the University of Georgia Charlayne Hunter Gault had never known any black reporters, especially any working for a mainstream newspaper. Yet it never occurred to her growing up in a segregated Georgia town that she couldn't rise to that position. Perhaps it was her confidence -- the same confidence that helped her endure the angry taunts and insults from white students who opposed her integrating the University of Georgia -- that buoyed her dreams and the possibilities of crossing territory that had yet been charted by only a few African Americans.
