  • Lawrenceville Celebrates 50 Years of Black Students

    Posted September 4, 2014

    The year was 1964. Just a few months earlier, President Lyndon B. Johnson had signed the Civil Rights Act into law, striking down racial segregation in schools, workplaces, and other public accommodations. That September, Lawrenceville enrolled its first two black students: Second Former Darrell Fitzgerald ’68, a day student from Trenton; and Lyals Battle ’67, a Third Form boarder from Maryland. The 50th anniversary of this pivotal moment in Lawrenceville’s history will be celebrated throughout the coming year, beginning with a special weekend of events September 26-27.
