Summary
Historian Janette Hoston Harris was born on September 7, 1939 in Monroe, Louisiana. While attending Southern University in 1960, Harris and six other students were arrested attempting to desegregate an all-white lunch counter. The arrest resulted in her expulsion from Southern and any other Louisiana college by order of the governor. In 1960, Harris' case, "Hoston v. the State of Louisiana" was heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, argued and won by Thurgood Marshall. She earned her B.A. degree in psychology in 1962 from Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio. After working for the Peace Corps, she taught in Washington, D.C. public schools. In 1970, she worked for the Association for Study of Afro-American Life and History. After earning her Ph.D. degree from Howard University in 1975, Harris taught history at Federal City College (now University of the District of Columbia). In 1998, Harris was appointed as the city historian for Washington, D.C.
