Autherine Lucy Foster received an honorary doctorate from the University of Alabama in 2019 at age 89. She originally applied in 1952, was denied because she was Black, enrolled in 1956, was dismissed after three days because of riots and threats on her life. In 1988 the dismissal was annulled and she graduated with her daughter in 1991 with a Master’s in education.
