Winston-Salem Chronicle Covers Anniversary of Integration
October 04, 2012
James McCorkle ’66 and his experience 50 years ago as the first African-American student at Guilford were the subject of an article in the Winston-Salem Chronicle.
“It was a unique experience. I learned a number of things,” James said. “I guess I learned to be in an all-white environment on campus and in the classrooms as well. Sometimes, it was (lonely), but I made friends and I guess the longer I was there, the better it got.”
The Sept. 28 Beacon included an interview with James.
