This slide was created by various faculty members sharing information found about Rachel Flowers, the first African American student to attend my college.
Updated August 2013:
My name is Christina and I am a senior history major at Messiah College. I was inspired to discover the story of Rachel Flowers after reading the slide above. It challenged me to learn who Rachel was and who she became. I remember thinking to myself that it would only take a few months to complete her story, but today I come to you almost two years later. Still, I am unfolding Rachel’s story, yet I have made it my goal to uncover the story of her entire family for it is one that needs to be told. Years later and I continued to be amazed because this is only the beginning.
Stay posted as both you and I discover the Flowers’ family.
