Bluford vs. Canada, Civil Action No. 128: Amended Complaint for Deprivation of Plaintiff's Civil Rights under Color of State Law
Amended complaint for deprivation of plaintiff's civil rights under color of state laws in Civil Case No. 128: Lucile Bluford v. S.W. Canada. The amendments to the original complaint include noting that Bluford "duly applied to Lincoln University," and noting that University of Missouri registrar Canada refused her registration "solely because of plaintiff's race." 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.
