Howard University student reading, 1946. LIFE photo by Alfred Eisenstaedt.
Howard was proud to be “America’s center of Negro learning” (LIFE, November 18, 1946). However, it was not an exclusively “negro” establishment, and although these photographs display an attractive, positive and sincere representation of African-Americans engaged in academic life, they are still, for the time and readership of LIFE, “comfortably segregated.”
