The University of Alabama paid tribute to Autherine Lucy Foster, James Hood and the late Vivian Malone Jones, the three African-American students whose enrollment represented UA’s first steps toward desegregation, at the dedication of the Malone-Hood Plaza and Autherine Lucy Clock Tower at Foster Auditorium on Nov. 3.
UA students, faculty and staff joined Foster, Hood and their families, and Jones’ family, for the dedication ceremony. Coresa Nancy Hogan, president of UA’s Black Student Union, and James Fowler, SGA president, co-hosted the event, which was followed by a community celebration.
