(p.105) Chapter Five Save the Males
Charleston In Black and White

This chapter explores the ways that race, gender, and sexuality shaped the institutional policies and student body of the Citadel, a school renowned for upholding southern white manhood. This reveals the multiple, sometimes competing, legacies of the civil rights movement. The contests for racial integration in the 1960s, gender integration in the 1990s, and acknowledgment of homosexuality in the Citadel's Corps of Cadets in the 2000s were very different struggles, but they shared the goals of equal access and equal treatment. Not everyone in Charleston equated the movements for civil rights, women's rights, and gay rights, but all of these struggles spilled over into the cloistered world of life at the Citadel.

Keywords:   Citadel, institutional policies, southern white manhood, race, gender, sexuality, civil rights, women's rights, gay rights, Corps of Cadets
