Museum Matinee: Born to Rebel, Driven to Excel

Film, History, Museum
This 30 minute film biography tells the story of South Carolinian, Dr. Benjamin Mays.
Benjamin Mays, from Epworth, South Carolina, saw the racism and forced segregation of life around him and decided to challenge it with education and religion. Against the advice of his father, Mays pursued a formal education and rose to the top of his class, becoming Dean of Religion at Howard University, and later earned a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Chicago. He would become president of Morehouse College in 1940, and his influence on civil rights and education for the next three decades would reach far and wide.
