A look back at Stillman College’s nearly 150 years of faithful service

What gives someone the will to do what is right in the face of possible death threats, intimidation or loss of comfort? One could offer it’s the power of the Holy Spirit, and yet following the nudge of the Spirit is still a choice. In the postbellum South, a Presbyterian minister recognized an opportunity to educate Black men and prepare them for ministry. This conviction took him all the way to the 1875 General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the United States, which voted to authorize the inception of the Tuscaloosa Institute.  The Rev. Dr. Charles Allen Stillman’s legacy is deeply rooted and connected to the history of what is now known as Stillman College.
