Bryan was incorporated in 1872, but it would take more than ten years before its African American population was offered schooling. Nothing would come easy for them, but they persevered through hard work, ingenuity and family support. The success of todaya€™s generation is a direct result of determined, hardworking pioneers like Dr. Samuel J. Sealey Sr., Bryana€™s a€œbaby doctora€ in the 1930s and a€™40s, and Dr. William A. Hammond Sr., who opened Bryana€™s first black hospital and employed many blacks through his business ventures. Learn about the inspiration and guidance provided by the likes of Oliver Wayne Sadberry, an outstanding community leader and principal of Fairview and Washington Elementary. Dr. Oswell Person shares the story of this communitya€™s achievements, successes and contributions in the face of incredible odds.Saint Philips College (TX) San Francisco State University Southern University ( LA) Texas Aaamp;M University Texas Aaamp;M University Annex Texas College Texas Southern University Texas Womena#39;s University United States Naval Academy University of California at Berkeley ...
