Not So Ivory
African American Women Historians Creating Academic Communities
This chapter focuses on Crystal N. Feimster, the historian who instead wanted to practice law when she entered the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as a freshman in 1990. Feimster had decided on a career in the legal profession not out of some compelling interest in law but because it provided a valid excuse for turning down a four-year academic scholarship that required a commitment to teaching in the North Carolina public schools upon graduation. She had been awarded the North Carolina Teaching Fellows Scholarship, and had she accepted the award, it would have meant not only having to commit to teaching but also having to give her dream of attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill because the fellowship committee required that she attend the university of its choice: Appalachian State University.
