Abstract:
A look at the civil rights case of 'Hocutt' v. 'Wilson,' filed in 1933 in North Carolina wherein Thomas R. Hocutt, an African American, was denied admission to the School of Pharmacy at the University of North Carolina and then filed a lawsuit in response. The case set a series of events into motion, despite Hocutt's loss, that helped lay the groundwork for later civil rights cases and illustrate some of the issues unique to the Jim Crow South.
