Day 8: Dr. Barbara Guillory Thompson '57 and Pearlie Elloie '60

Dr. Barbara Guillory Thompson '57 and Pearlie Elloie '60, MSW were the first Black students to integrate Tulane University in 1963.

Born in 1936, New Orleans native Dr. Thompson graduated cm laude from Dillard University in 1957. She continued her education at Louisiana State University, where she was the first African-American woman to live in a dormitory before graduating with an M.A. in sociology in 1960. Dr. Thompson then sought to attain her Ph.D. from Tulane University. However, at the time, Tulane was a segregated institution. Nevertheless, she persisted and teamed up with Pearlie Elloie, a fellow Dillard graduate to integrate Tulane. The two Dillard alumnae were hand-picked to be involved in a 1961 lawsuit that led to the integration of Tulane. Once the lawsuit was won, the trailblazers enrolled. Thompson earned her Ph.D. in sociology and Elloie, a master's in social work.

In an interview with The Louisiana Weekly, Elloie shared her experience at Tulane, post-integration. "Elloie said she was received kindly by the administration and her fellow students. Even so, she ran into students who treated her as alien, but she tended to take it in stride," The historic newspaper reported. “For a couple of students, it was clear they were not prepared to go to school with an African American, much less a sociable and outgoing African American,” Elloie said.

Both Thompson and Elloie gave back to the greater New Orleans community once they graduated from Tulane. Thompson was a professor at Dillard University and worked on the New Orleans Civil Service Commission. Elloie became a social worker working with New Orleans youth

The HBCU Museum Mission Statement

Our mission is to align ourselves with HBCUs, collect partial and full/partial scholarships from them, and award them to qualified under privileged applicants. Eligible students will be required to attend in person interviews and give a speech to the board as to why they should receive a free scholarship. All decisions will be voted on by the board and the results will be emailed to the students. The students who are selected for scholarship placement will have to maintain a 3.0 gpa in order to retain their HBCU scholarship status. In addition to our scholarship program we will provide free weekly tutoring sessions for local high school and college students with a valid student ID. We will also organize business seminars and conferences with HBCU keynote speakers and stream them to HBCU campuses nationwide.
