Former Harris Stowe Instructor Gets Nearly $5M Award In Missouri Lawsuit

St. Louis, MO  (KTRS)  A St. Louis County jury has awarded nearly $5 million to a former Harris-Stowe State University instructor who argued the historically black school discriminated against her because she is white.

Beverly Wilkins’ 2012 lawsuit focused on one administrator it accused of subscribing to the “Black Power” mantra and working systematically to purge Harris-Stowe’s education college of white faculty.

The Missouri Attorney General’s Office represented Harris-Stowe and has refused to comment about the verdict. As chairman of the Harris-Stowe State University governing board, Ronald Norwood said in a statement that the verdict was “regrettable,” leaving open the prospect of an appeal.
