Continue Reading About Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) Civil Rights Challenge And Historical Human Achievements, Some 52 Years Ago, By Elizabeth City State College (ECSC) Students.  A Time Of Mourning, Elizabeth City, NC, April 7, 1968.

Charles L. Singleton In Earlier College Years

“Turbulent Times.” Yes, looking back, we as a community in 1968 lived with repeated “Social Unrest” before and after the untimely assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., April 4, 1968.  As a matter of fact, on the evening of February 8, 1968, HBCU South Carolina State College (SCSC: SCSU), 200 protesters were demonstrating against racial segregation at the local bowling alley.

Afterwards, on the South Carolina State College campus, three African American male protesters were "killed, and twenty-eight other student protestors were wounded" by South Carolina Highway Patrol officers, Orangeburg, South Carolina.  During this death-driven tragedy, my fellow Alston High School 1964 classmate and track teammate, Jordan M. Simmons III, Summerville, South Carolina, was brought down with a single shot to his neck, nearly missing his aorta and spine.

Amazingly and medically, after his miraculous near-death experience at “The Orangeburg Massacre,” Jordan M. Simmons III graduated from college and voluntarily joined the U. S. Army.  Thereafter, he bravely served in Vietnam (Airmobile, 1970-1971) with the 101st Airborne Division ("Screaming Eagles”), as an infantry platoon leader and company executive officer.

He also courageously served in the Gulf War (“Desert Storm”) 1991, as an Intelligence Information Systems officer.  Lieutenant Colonel Simmons, a 29-year army veteran, successfully retired in 1998.  --- Alston High School Garnet & Blue 1964 Journal Classic Stories, 2014-2020.  Revisit the “Orangeburg Massacre -- Survivors Tell Their Stories."

 “A Time Of Mourning.” On April 7, 1968, only three days after M. L. King’s assassination, a nonviolent and peaceful HBCU Elizabeth City State College (ECSC) march was successfully organized on campus and completed at the Pasquotank County Courthouse, Elizabeth City, North Carolina. “Stay the Course” and “The Cross of Freedom.”

--- Historical Speeches by Charles L. Singleton, ECSC Student Council President 

Also, Therefore, We Must Vote! “People Don't Get Sick." --- Barack Hussein Obama, 44th President of the United States.  Click here
Something to think about and do now! The Very Same 1968 HBCU ECSC. ECSU “Nonviolent Attitudes and Peaceful Protesting” are needed today.
I would like to remember and thank these 4 legendary civil rights leaders:
  • Rev. Dr. Cordy Tindell "C. T." Vivian
  • John Robert Lewis, U.S. Congressman
  • Rev. Dr. Joseph Echols Lowery
  • Activist Norris Earl Francis Jr.
