Description:
Harold K. Brown attended San Diego State College on a basketball scholarship starting in 1953. His studies were interrupted by two years of military service, but he returned to SDSC and finished his degree in physical education and speech. After graduating, he became active in the Civil Rights Movement. In 1971 he became the first African-American administrator at San Diego State. The Harold K. Brown Papers (1963-2000) document Brown's participation in the local Civil Rights Movement, his dedication to community economic development, and his professional life, with a heavy emphasis on the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), Brown's role in the School Integration Task Force, and his involvement with the Black Economic Development Task Force.
