April 24

The Medico-Chirurgical Society, the oldest black medical association in the United States, was formed in Washington, DC, on this date in 1884. This group was founded because the AMA refused to allow black physicians into their group.

Augustus Tolton was ordained a Roman Catholic Priest in Rome and then assigned to America on this date in 1886. Tolton is considered by some to be the first black Priest since both James and Patrick Healy had a white father and a mulatto mother.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill admitted its first black student on this date in 1951.
