On February 23, 2023 SCUA archivist Stacey Krim exhibited materials at the Oden Brewing Company from the Elreta Alexander Papers, housed in UNC Greensboro’s Special Collections and University Archives. At the event, Dr. Virginia L. Summey, author of The Life of Elreta Melton Alexander: Activism within the Courts, spoke about Alexander’s life and legacy. Elreta Alexander (1919-1998) was the first African-American woman to: 1) graduate from Columbia University Law School when she received her degree in 1945, 2) practice law in North Carolina (in Greensboro from 1947-1968), and 3) be elected to the bench when she was elected District Court judge for Guilford County in 1968.
