James Lee Dickey: An Analysis of One African-American's Leadership in Jim Crow Texas


Tillotson College (later merged with Huston College to form Huston-Tillotson College) was a historically black college created by the American Missionary Association to educate freed slaves and freedmen in Texas. Other post secondary colored schools in Texas included Paul Quinn College in Waco, Wiley College in Marshall, and Prairieview Normal College near Hempstead. The initial goal of historically black colleges and universities (hbcu) was to develop leaders that would guide African Americans through post Reconstruction politics and teachers that would educate multitudes of other African Americans that had previously been denied quality education. Those students in turn would become professionals such as businessmen, engineers, doctors and lawyers.
