Integration pioneer cites Catholic schools' impact

Fifty years ago, Henrie Monteith Treadwell made history when she successfully fought to attend the segregated University of South Carolina. She praises her family and especially her Catholic school upbringing for helping her stay focused against injustice.

In September 1963, Treadwell, at the age of 16, became the first African-American woman to enroll at the University of South Carolina.
