Miller

Kelly Miller, the first African-American student to enroll at Johns Hopkins University, begins his studies for a graduate degree in mathematics.  Miller leaves two years later, when the University's economic crisis prompts a 25% increase in tuition.  He later acquires a faculty position at Howard University, his undergraduate alma mater, where he serves with distinction for many years as professor of mathematics and dean of arts and sciences.  He is a prolific writer and an outspoken advocate for African-American rights in general and African American education in particular. 

Kelly Miller, W.E.B. DuBois, and Booker T. Washington are called, by some, “the Big Three” of Negro leadership during the Nineteenth and early Twentieth centuries.
