The Legacies They Built: Honoring Pinkie Gordon Lane, Lutrill and Pearl Payne, and Julian T. White

In 2022, LSU’s Board of Supervisors voted to recognize the significant contributions of four Black LSU pioneers by naming two programs and one building in their honor: the Pinkie Gordon Lane Graduate School, Lutrill and Pearl Payne School of Education, and Julian T. White Hall (formerly the Design Building) to honor their legacies. But who were these inspiring figures?

LSU Libraries Special Collections’ new exhibition, “The Legacies They Built: Honoring Pinkie Gordon Lane, Lutrill and Pearl Payne, and Julian T. White,” highlights creative works, photographs, correspondence, and publications that tell their stories before, during, and after their time on LSU’s campus as well as the broader connections that they made in academia and in their public contributions.

The exhibition is on display during normal business hours in Hill Memorial Library through December 20, 2023, and is free and open to the public.
