Bluford vs. Canada, Civil Action No. 42: Amendment to Amended Second Complaint
Amendment to amended second complaint in Civil Action No. 42: Lucile Bluford v. S.W. Canada. The plaintiff's attorneys request changes be made to their amended second complaint, including a statement about Bluford's knowledge that Lincoln University "had not and did not offer graduate or undergraduate work in journalism." At the time, Bluford was the managing editor of the Kansas City Call and her effort to gain admittance to the masters degree program at MU's School of Journalism, and repeated denials due to her race, lead to a a series of lawsuits that eventually reached the Missouri Supreme Court.
