PITT'S AFRICAN-AMERICAN
WOMEN CELEBRATED

Although student records are incomplete before 1910, it is thought that the first black woman to attend the University arrived on campus near the turn of the century. Certainly, the first black woman to complete a bachelor's degree from Pitt was Jean Hamilton Walls, who graduated in 1910 and who, in 1938, returned to campus to become the first black woman to earn a PhD. To celebrate these early pioneers and to honor the many African-American women scholars who have followed them, a student-alumni networking breakfast was held recently at Pitt.

The event, "Building Bridges to Our Future," was sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh Black Faculty Forum, the African American Alumni Council of the Pitt Alumni Association, the Office of the Provost, and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student and Public Affairs.

Keynote speaker for the breakfast, which honored Gladys B. McNairy, was Pittsburgh Judge Cheryl Craig (Law '75), of the Juvenile Section of the Family Division of the Court of Common Pleas. McNairy, the first elected black president of the Pittsburgh School Board and the first black female to sit on the University's Board of Trustees, is credited with opening many doors for blacks within the University community and has been a mentor and role model for young black women.

Ruthie King, vice president of the African American Alumni Council, invited students to use the council as a resource. For more information on the African American Alumni Council, contact Bernard Mack at (412)384-5580, or e-mail him at back47305@aol.com
