The University of Georgia vs. Hunter & Holmes

January 6 - Athens, Georgia - After two years of legal battles, led by attorneys Constance Baker Motley, Donald Hollowell and Vernon Jordan, the U.S. District Court ruled that the University of Georgia must integrate immediately and accept Charlayne Hunter (Gault) and Hamilton Holmes.   Gault, who chose to live on campus, was met by constant harassment and animosity including an anti-Black riot outside of her dormitory room.   Gault and Holmes graduated in 1963, one year after Mary Francis Early, a Black graduate student who transferred to the University four months after Gault and Holmes, graduated in 1962.
