Last week, in the crush of activities and excitement leading up to the LSU game, a very important symposium took place on campus examining the integration of the University of Alabama athletic programs. A panel of six speakers talked about their experiences in dealing with the transition from an era of segregated teams to ones where blacks and whites competed alongside each other. They included former basketball coach C.M. Newton and former player Wendell Hudson, the school's first black scholarship player. Also speaking were Brenda Lyons (nee McCampbell) Alabama's first black cheerleader; Andrew Parnel, one of five black players who walked on the football squad in 1966; Kelvin Croom, a former player and brother of former Miss. State coach Sylvester Croom and Walter Lewis, the school's first black quarterback.
