Faithful to the Task at Hand (SUNY Press), by Carroll L.L. Miller (B.A. ’29, M.A. ’30) and Anne S. Pruitt-Logan (B.S. ’49), tells the remarkable story of Lucy Diggs Slowe, the first African-American woman to win a major sports title, a founder of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and the first dean of women at Howard University. With her steadfast determination, Slowe works her way through college, earns respect as a teacher and dean and stands up to Howard’s president and board of trustees in insisting on equal treatment of women.
