Tougaloo College

Tougaloo College, chartered by the state of Mississippi in 1871, began offering college courses in 1897. This private, historically black liberal arts institution has a long history of social commitment and played a pivotal role during the Civil Rights Movement. Woodworth Chapel, built around 1901 and restored from 1998-2002, was the center of much of that activity.
